Baston didn't get his draft news as
early as Traylor. In fact, Baston's name
might be an answer to a trivia question
some day, as he was the last person
selected Wednesday. The three-time
defending NBA champion Chicago
Bulls took Baston with the 58th pick
"He would have liked to be drafted
higher, but he was honored to be one of
the 58 players chosen," said Baston's
agent, Henry Thomas. "There were
lots of guys with great college careers
who didn't have their names called."
Baston, a 6-foot-9, 210 pounder,
considered a project by many NBA
scouts, is expected to play both small
forward and power forward. Baston is

"It's very likely that there will be a
lockout;' Thomas said. "We will be
exploring many different options for
Maceo in the United States and over-
One Michigan frontcourt standout
who didn't hear his name called was
forward Jerod Ward. Ward, whose
breakout senior season looked to be
enough to get him drafted, suffered a
knee injury for the third time in four
years, scaring off potential NBA suit-
Ward "is just looking to get healthy,"
Ellerbe said. "His rehab is going well,
and when he gets healthy, he could
have a long-term opportunity (to play
in the NBA). However, we are just
looking to get Jerod healthy right
