New Orleans Pelicans

Best Value: Chris Paul, No. 4, 2005. Paul was taken between Deron Williams and Raymond Felton — a nice little run of excellent college point guards. Paul is the shortest of the three, but his game translated just fine to the pros, and he spent six terrific seasons with New Orleans.

Worst Value:
J.R. Reid, No. 5, 1989. This was a rough year for highly touted big men — Reid, Stacey King and Pervis Ellison never developed into NBA stars. (Photo: Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)
