2012 NBA Draft Results: Festus Ezeli Selected By Warriors With 30th Pick

The Golden State Warriors used their second pick of the 2012 NBA Draft, which was No. 30 overall, on a big man to help bolster their front line. The team selected Vanderbilt Commodores forward Festus Ezeli to be the final player taken in the first round, and he should help their rotation immediately.

Ezeli, 22, battled knee issues this past season but was a monster when healthy and able to let everything loose on the court. He clocks in at 6'11 and 255lbs, and averaged 10 points and 5.5 rebounds this past season in the SEC. A senior, he is still fairly new to organized basketball.

The Warriors will pick next with the 35th overall selection in the second round.
