The Charlotte Hornets have selected power forward Noah Vonleh with the ninth overall pick in the NBA draft.
It marks the second straight year Charlotte has taken a player from Indiana with its lottery pick. Last year the team selected Cody Zeller with the fourth overall pick.
The 6-foot-10 Vonleh gives the team some added height and a potential replacement at power forward in case the team is unable to re-sign Josh McRoberts, who opted out of his contract earlier this month. McRoberts graduated from Carmel High School.
Vonleh averaged 11 points and nine rebounds and was the Big Ten freshman of the year last season.
The Denver Nuggets used the 19th pick acquired from the Chicago Bulls in a draft-day deal to get Michigan State guard Gary Harris.
The Nuggets surrendered the draft rights to Creighton forward Doug McDermott - their pick at No. 11 - to the Bulls for the opportunity to pick up Bosnian center Jusuf Nurkic (16th overall) and Harris.
The 6-foot-4 Harris was high on the Nuggets' list and rather surprisingly slipped to No. 19. He averaged 16.7 points and 2.7 assists last season for the Spartans.Harris was named 2012 Mr. Basketball in Indiana during his senior season at Hamilton Southeastern.
