INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- The Cleveland Cavaliers have selected Arizona State forward Carrick Felix with the No. 33 overall pick in the NBA draft.
The Cavs used their fourth pick and second in the second round on Felix, who averaged 14.6 points and a team-high 8.1 rebounds last season for the Sun Devils. The 6-foot-6 Felix is considered a strong defender, which may have attracted Cavs coach Mike Brown to him.
