Anthony ‘Antman’ Edwards goes No. 1 overall in NBA draft to Minnesota

UGA Basketball has its first ever No. 1 overall pick

ATHENS — Former Georgia star Anthony “Antman” Edwards was the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night.

It’s the second year in a row Coach Tom Crean has had a player drafted out of UGA. Nicoloas Claxton was the second round draft of the Brooklyn Nets in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Edwards represents the highest a former Bulldogs’ player has been selected in school history. Former NBA all-star Dominique Wilkins was previously the highest UGA player selected, going No 3 overall to Utah in 1982 (he was traded to Atlanta).
