Who Went Where After the 2008 NBA Draft: Central Division

Evan Aczon@TwoSeamGripeSenior Analyst IJune 29, 2008

After the flurry of draft-day trades of players, draft picks, and cash, I have the final results all in one place. Here's the Central Division. I also have the unsigned rookies (R), as well as restricted (RFA) and unrestricted (UFA) free agents.


Chicago Bulls: After picking Derrick Rose with the No. 1 pick, they have options in the backcourt, making Kirk Hinrich and Ben Gordon expendable. They also received rights to Omer Asik from Portland in exchange for two future draft picks. Traded 39th pick Sonny Weems to Denver for a second-round pick in 2009.
