2011 NBA Draft Order

The 2011 NBA Draft gets underway tonight in Newark, New Jersey on Thursday night, just over a week after the Dallas Mavericks were crowned NBA Champions for the first time in franchise history. The Mavericks will be drafting No. 26 overall in the first round, so they're not terribly likely to add an impact caliber talent barring some sort of miracle. Still, the draft is an exciting time for NBA fans - and it might be the last time we have an NBA related event for awhile with the lockout looming large. Anyway, the draft order in the first round is follows, thanks to SB Nation's NBA Draft center:

1. Cavaliers
2. Timberwolves
3. Jazz
4. Cavaliers
5. Raptors
6. Wizards
7. Kings
8. Pistons
9. Bobcats
10. Bucks
11. Warriors
12. Jazz
13. Suns
14. Rockets
15. Pacers
16. 76ers
17. Knicks
18. Wizards
19. Bobcats
20. Timberwolves
21. Trail Blazers
22. Nuggets
