2011 NBA Draft: Order, TV Schedule, Time And More

Colorado Buffaloes fans and Denver Nuggets fans will have plenty to look forward to during Thursday night's 2011 NBA Draft. Buffs guard Alec Burks is set to become the highest drafted CU player since Chauncey Billups went third overall in 1997. He could go anywhere from No. 7 (Sacramento) to No. 10 (Milwaukee) or even farther down, out of a lottery position.

The Denver Nuggets hold the No. 22 pick and will make their first first-round selection since 2005 when they drafted Julius Hodge (a failure) and Jarrett Jack (a journeyman) with the 20th and 22nd overall selections.

Television coverage of the 2011 NBA Draft begins at 5 p.m. MT on ESPN, though selections likely won't start until 5:30 p.m. MT. The draft runs 60 picks long and both rounds will take place on Thursday evening. The Nuggets, as of now, hold just the No. 22 overall pick.
