CHICAGO (CBS) Below is a complete recap of 670 The Score’s live NBA Draft blog:

Draft Tracker

First Round

1. Cleveland Cavaliers: G Kyrie Irving, Duke

2. Minnesota Timberwolves: F Derrick Williams, Arizona

3. Utah Jazz: C Enes Kanter, Turkey

4. Cleveland Cavaliers: F Tristan Thompson, Texas

5. Toronto Raptors: C Jonas Valanciunas, Lithuania

6. Washington Wizards: F Jan Vesely, Czech Republic

7. Sacramento Kings: F Bismack Biyombo, Congo

Biyombo was drafted by the Kings, but will likely end up in Charlotte as part of a proposed three-team deal. For more on the deal, see below.

8. Detroit Pistons: G Brandon Knight, Kentucky

Love what he did in the NCAA Tournament. He will be an above-average defender in the NBA, but he needs to improve his shot.

9. Charlotte Bobcats: G Kemba Walker, Connecticut

10. Milwaukee Bucks: G Jimmer Fredette, BYU

Fredette will end up in Sacramento as part of the same three-team deal. While many believe he will flop in the NBA, I think he will be pretty good. His defense needs some work, but he can shoot from anywhere. He’s also much stronger than people give him credit for and will be able to create his own shot at the NBA level.

11. Golden State Warriors: G Klay Thompson, Washington State

12. Utah Jazz: G Alec Burks, Colorado

13. Phoenix Suns: F Maurkieff Morris, Kansas

14. Houston Rockets: F Marcus Morris, Kansas

15. Indiana Pacers: F Kawhi Leonard, San Diego State

16. Philadelphia 76ers: C Nikola Vucevic, USC

17. New York Knicks: G Iman Shumpert, Georgia Tech

Shumpert is a local product from Oak Park-River Forest High School. He wasn’t necessarily  expected to go this high, but he’s a long guard who will make it in the NBA because he can defend.

18. Washington Wizards: F Chris Singleton, Florida State

I think Singleton has a ton of upside. I had a chance to watch him play in the NCAA Tournament at the United Center and was really impressed with his athleticism. He won’t put up huge offensive numbers, but he’ll be a great defensive player in the NBA with his length.

19. Charlotte Bobcats: F Tobias Harris, Tennessee

Harris will end up in Milwaukee on the three-team trade goes through.

20. Minnesota Timberwolves: F Donatas Motiejunas, Lithuania

21. Portland Trailblazers: G Nolan Smith, Duke

I love players who get noticeably better in their final college season. A year ago I didn’t think Smith had an NBA future, but if he keeps getting better, he has a chance.

22. Denver Nuggets: F Kenneth Faried, Morehead State

No player made themselves more money in the NCAA Tournament than Faried. Comparisons to Dennis Rodman are understandable.

23. Houston Rockets: F Nikola Mirotic

Mirotic goes to the Bulls after first being traded to the Timberwolves as part of a different deal.

24. Oklahoma City Thunder: G Reggie Jackson, Boston College

25. Boston Celtics: G MarShon Brooks, Providence College

The Celtics traded Brooks to the Nets for JaJuan Johnson and a future second round pick.

26. Dallas Mavericks: F Jordan Hamilton, Texas

27. New Jersey Nets: F JaJuan Johnson, Purdue

Johnson will go to the Celtics in exchange for MarShon Brooks.

28. Chicago Bulls: G Norris Cole, Cleveland State

Cole ends up with the Miami Heat after first being traded to the Timberwolves by the Bulls.

29. San Antonio Spurs: G Corey Joseph, Texas

30. Chicago Bulls: G/F Jimmy Butler, Marquette

Second Round

31. Miami Heat: F Bojan Bogdanovic

32. Cleveland Cavaliers: F Justin Harper

33. Detroit Pistons: F Kyle Singler, Duke

34. Washington Wizards: G Shelvin Mack, Butler

35. Sacramento Kings: F Tyler Honeycutt, UCLA

36. New Jersey Nets: C Jordan Williams, Maryland

37. Los Angeles Clippers: F Trey Thompkins, Georgia

38. Houston Rockets: F Chandler Parsons, Florida.

39. Charlotte Bobcats: F Jeremy Tyler, San Diego, Ca./Japan

40. Milwaukee Bucks: F Jon Leuer, Wisconsin

Covered Leuer throughout his career at Wisconsin and was disappointed in his performance his senior year. I thought he was due to break out and while he had a good year statistically, he didn’t take the strides I thought he would. There’s potential if he gets the right coaching, but I’m not sure he’ll be successful in the NBA.

41. Los Angeles Lakers: G Darius Morris, Michigan

I thought he came out a year too soon, but Morris is young and has a lot of potential. Good value at No. 41.

42. Indiana Pacers: F Davis Bertans

43. Chicago Bulls: G Malcolm Lee, UCLA

Lee will end up with the Timberwolves as part of the trade that gave the Bulls Mirotic.

44. Golden State Warriors: G Charles Jenkins, Hofstra

45. New Orleans Hornets: C Josh Harrellson, Kentucky

Harrellson was traded to the Knicks for financial considerations.

46. Los Angeles Lakers: G Andrew Goudelock, College of Charleston

47. Los Angeles Clippers: G Travis Leslie, Georgia

48. Atlanta Hawks: C Keith Benson, Oakland

49. Memphis Grizzlies: G Josh Selby, Kansas

50. Philadelphia 76ers: F Lavoy Allen, Temple

51. Portland Trailblazers: G Jon Diebler, Ohio State

52. Detroit Pistons: F Vernon Macklin, Florida

53. Orlando Magic: G DeAndre Liggins, Kentucky

54. Cleveland Cavaliers: F Milan Macvan, Serbia

55. Boston Celtics: G E’Twaun Moore, Purdue

56. Los Angeles Lakers: F Chukwudiebere Maduabum, Nigeria

57. Dallas Mavericks: F Tanguy Ngombo

Ngombo will end up with Minnesota as part of an earlier trade.

58. Los Angeles Lakers: F Ater Majok, Sudan

59. San Antonio Spurs: G Adam Hanga, Hungary

60. Sacramento Kings: G Isaiah Thomas, Washington

News and Rumors

8:47 p.m. - The Bulls pulled off a trade to move up to No. 23.

8:27 p.m. – In a somewhat surprising move, the San Antonio Spurs have a proposed trade with the Pacers to send guard George Hill to Indiana for the draft rights to Kawhi Leonard, who was selected 15th overall, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski.

6:58 p.m. - The consensus regarding the Bulls’ picks (28th and 30th overall) is that Gar Forman would like to package them together to trade for a veteran or an earlier first round pick. Unfortunately, late first round picks are hard to trade because there’s not a whole lot of talent available and they come with guaranteed contracts.

6:00 p.m. - In the biggest pre-draft trade thus far, the Bucks, Bobcats and Kings have agreed to a three-team swap that will send Stephen Jackson in Milwaukee, according to multiple reports.

The Bucks will receive Sacramento’s Beno Udrih as well as Jackson and Shaun Livingston from Charlotte in the trade. Milwaukee also picks up the 19th overall pick from the Bobcats while sending John Salmons and the 10th overall pick to Sacramento. Charlotte ends up with the No. 7 pick from Sacramento and Corey Maggette from Milwaukee.
