Sound Off: Jayhawks who were No. 1 NBA draft picks

I’ve heard analysts say that KU freshman Ben McLemore might be the first pick in the June NBA draft. What other KU players have been the No. 1 pick in the draft?

KU has had two players selected first in the NBA draft: Danny Manning in 1988 and Wilt Chamberlain in 1959. The highest pick since Manning in 1988 was Raef LaFrentz, selected third overall in 1998.
