ESPN Stats and Information
Harry Giles goes No. 20 to the Trail Blazers (reportedly traded to the Kings). Giles is the 6th straight No. 1 player in the ESPN 100 to declare for the NBA Draft after one season in college. The previous 5 were picked within the first 6 selections.

With the No. 20 overall pick, the Trail Blazers selected Harry Giles (G, Duke), who'll be the final piece of the agreed-upon 10 for 15 and 20 swap. That leaves Sacramento's first-round haul as Giles (20), Justin Jackson (15), and De'Aaron Fox (5).
The Sacramento Kings will receive Duke forward Harry Giles (via Trail Blazers), who was the No. 20 overall pick of the 2017 NBA draft on Thursday night.
Ben Alamar ESPN Analytics
Kings getting great value with Giles at 20 - 51% chance he will be at least a role player in the NBA.
Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider
Sacramento rolls the dice with Harry Giles. De'Aaron Fox, Justin Jackson, Giles. This is an ideal spot for Giles, who can try to get back to 100 percent at his own pace.
Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer
Thought Harry Giles was too risky for the lottery, but he's worth it at 20. Took awhile to recover from his first injury, but eventually regained his bounce and confidence. If he can get back to that (even 85-90 percent of that) after his second injury, Kings have a steal.
The Sacramento Kings will receive North Carolina forward Justin Jackson (via Trail Blazers), who was the No. 15 overall pick of the 2017 NBA draft on Thursday night.
De'Aaron Fox talks with Marc Kestecher, PJ Carlesimo, Bob Valvano and Marc Stein about being yet another Kentucky player drafted by the Sacramento Kings
Adam Reisinger ESPN.com
With the No. 15 overall pick, the Trail Blazers selected Justin Jackson (F, North Carolina), but this pick is headed to Sacramento as part of the swap for the No. 10 pick, along with the 20th overall pick.
