Kansas Jayhawks Cole Aldrich, Xavier Henry get picked back-to-back in NBA Draft
Cole Aldrich can temper his enthusiasm for playing with New Orleans Hornets’ elite point guard Chris Paul.
The Kansas center was drafted by the Hornets with the eleventh pick and then traded to the
Seattle SuperSonics Oklahoma City Thunder for a couple of later first round draft picks (Iowa State power forward Craig Brackins and Washington small forward Quincy Pondexter).
Poor, Cole. Going to a playoff contender — and the home of one of the league’s top-five best players, Kevin Durant.
