NBA sideline reporter Craig Sager recently underwent chemotherapy to treat leukemia and wasn't physically able to attend Thursday night's NBA draft.

However, NBA TV got a bit creative by placing a life-size cardboard cutout of the popular correspondent at the event.

NBA draftees Doug McDermott, Tyler Ennis and others were more than happy to snap photos with the honorary Sager.
