Hornets Grab No.1 Pick In Draft

NEW YORK (AP) The New Orleans Hornets, recently sold by the NBA to Saints owner Tom Benson, have won the NBA's draft lottery and the No. 1 pick overall.

The Hornets, after a difficult season in which they traded All-Star Chris Paul, have a shot to add another superstar, with Kentucky freshman Anthony Davis considered the best player available.

The Hornets moved up from the fourth spot, where they had a 13.7 percent chance, to earn the pick.

The Charlotte Bobcats, after the worst season in NBA history, fell to the No. 2 pick. Washington will pick third and Cleveland fell one spot to fourth.
