NEW YORK (AP) -- The Cleveland Cavaliers have selected UNLV freshman Anthony Bennett with the No. 1 pick, a surprising start to the NBA draft.

The Cavaliers passed on big men Nerlens Noel and Alex Len in favor of the forward who has starred for Canada's junior national teams and was the Mountain West Conference player of the year.

There was drama right until the end Thursday, either because the Cavs were unsure who they wanted or were trying to trade the pick.
