Days after adding Jerry West to the front office, the team purchasedpicks No. 39 and No. 48 from Philadelphia and Milwaukee, respectively. With those picks, they were able to select Jawun Evans out of Oklahoma State at No. 39 and South Carolina's Sindarius Thornwell with No. 48.
Both Evans and Thornwell played guard at the collegiate level.
Thornwell played on the South Carolina team that made it all the way to last year's Final Four.
