First twist of the draft

NBA Draft is going on now. First three picks were pretty much as expected - Irving, Williams, and Kanter. Cleveland's second pick at #4 is Tristan Thompson from Texas. Somewhat of a reach since most draft boards had him in the 6-9 range. Maybe the contract issues of Jonas Valanciunas scared them off. Toronto who picks 5th is high on Brandon Knight so Valanciunas might slip to 6th to the Wizards.

UPDATE:  Guess I was wrong...  Toronto chooses Valanciunas at 5th.
