Anthony says he should be the top pick in NBA draft
CHICAGO -- Carmelo Anthony knows the Cleveland Cavaliers have said they will take LeBron James with the first pick in the NBA draft. He has another opinion on who the top pick should be.
"I think I should go one, but things happen," Anthony said at a pre-draft camp for scouts and team officials at the Moody Bible Institute that ended Saturday.
"I'm just happy to be in the NBA draft," said Anthony, who opted to make the leap to the pros after leading Syracuse to the national championship in April as a freshman. "I'm happy that Denver is going to pick me."
The Nuggets finished with just 17 wins last season, tied for worst in the NBA, and have the third pick in the June 26 draft.
Detroit is expected to take European teenager Darko Milicic with the second pick.
"All indications show that right now," said Milicic's agent, Marc Cornstein.
The 6-foot-11, 250-pound 17-year-old played for Hemofarm Vrsac in Serbia & Montenegro last season.
