After a month of speculation, feints, smoke screens and misdirection, the Nets picked the player they were long expected to: Georgia Tech's 6'10" PF Derrick Favors.  The 18-year-old from Atlanta was chosen because of all the big men in the draft, Favors was seen as the player best equipped to play alongside Brook Lopez.
