Warriors Take Ekpe Udoh With Sixth Pick

With the sixth overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft the Golden State Warriors took Ekpe Udoh out of Baylor University. There was heavy speculation on the team being impressed with Udoh, and even more speculation on whether or not it was just a smokescreen. Clearly, it isn't.

NBA.com has some highlights listed on the 6-foot-10, 240-pound forward:

Career Highlights: Named an Honorable Mention All-America by The Associated Press as a junior. Named to the All-Big 12 Second Team by The Associated Press as a junior. Named to the Big 12 All-Defense team by coaches as a junior. Earned Big 12 Player of the Week honors in January of his junior season. Named to Big Ten All-Defensive team as a sophomore at Michigan.

For more on the pick you can head over to Golden State Of Mind, SB Nation's Warriors blog for their coverage of the whole draft, with an obvious emphasis on the Warriors.

The previous picks were point guard John Wall to the Wizards first overall, guard Evan Turner to the 76ers, forward Derrick Favors to the Nets, forward Wesley Johnson to the Timberwolves and forward DeMarcus Cousins to the Kings.
