(NEW YORK) -- The Cleveland Cavaliers selected forward Anthony Bennett, who spent one season at UNLV, with the No. 1 pick in Thursday's NBA Draft.
The 6'8" Bennett started 32 games for UNLV and averaged 16.1 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks in 35 games played.
"I'm just as surprised as anyone else," Bennett said after being drafted.
Bennett led the Rebels to a 25-10 season, but fell short to California in the second round of the March Madness.
He also became the first-ever Canadian No. 1 pick.
Following the Cavaliers, the Orlando Magic picked former Indiana star guard Victor Oladipo with the No. 2 pick.
The Wizards selected Otto Porter Jr. with the third pick. Cody Zeller was drafted by the Washington Wizards with the fourth.
The Phoenix Suns selected center Alex Len.
After many expected Nerlens Noel to be a top-five pick, he was selected sixth by the New Orleans Pelicans, which then traded him to the Philadelphia 76ers for a package that included Jrue Holiday, sources told ESPN.com.
