G Buddy Hield, Oklahoma
Selection: No. 6 overall
Who he is: Hield, a 22-year-old native of the Bahamas, won the Naismith Award, Oscar Robertson Trophy and Wooden Award as a senior at Oklahoma, leading the Sooners to the Final Four.
What he can do: He can shoot. Hield’s 147 3-pointers as a senior were 22 more than any other player in Division I, and his 45.7 percent shooting from 3-point range ranked sixth.
Player speak: “I’m so happy, not only for me but for all the kids back in the Bahamas. The norm is that we never make it out there.”
Guru talk: “Buddy is more just a pure shooter and scorer at the 2. He’s not a great ball handler. He’s not a great defender.” — Chad Ford, ESPN
