2011 NBA Draft Update: Cleveland State's Norris Cole Selected by Miami HEAT

The Chicago Bulls made the 28th selection in the 2011 NBA Draft, but the picks rights were held by Minnesota who traded the rights to the pick to the Miami Heat, who selected Cleveland State point guard Norris Cole.

If your brain doesn’t hurt like mine, then a big round of applause for you. In what has been one of the most confusing drafts I have seen, especially since none of these trades have been finalized.

So, the Cleveland State product will take his talents to South Beach. Cole has been compared to New York’s Tony Douglas, and he will play the role of distributor to the big three in Miami. Congratulations to Cole and to Cleveland State.
