Led by Marvin Bagley, Wendell Carter: 6 ACC players go in the first round of the 2018 NBA Draft

A year after having a record 10 players selected in the first round of the NBA Draft, the ACC has another six players selected in round one of the 2018 event. The ACC players landed three players in the lottery, too: Marvin Bagley, Wendell Carter and Jerome Robinson.

  • No. 2: Marvin Bagley, Sacramento Kings
  • No. 7: Wendell Carter, Chicago Bulls
  • No. 13: Jerome Robinson, Los Angeles Clippers
  • No. 18: Lonnie Walker, San Antonio Spurs
  • No. 20: Josh Okogie, Minnesota Timberwolves
  • No. 21: Grayson Allen, Utah Jazz


Quick Notes

  • With Bagley and Carter going in the lottery, that’s now 25 lottery selections for Duke — the most of any college program
  • Bagley going No. 2 to the Kings means it’s five straight years of a Duke Blue Devil going in the top three of the NBA Draft — going back to Jabari Parker in 2014
  • The ACC has now had a least one first round pick in 30 straight drafts, going back to 1989
  • This is also now 10 straight drafts with at least four first round picks from the ACC (2009-18)
