NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The New Orleans Hornets used the first pick in Thursday's NBA draft to select Kentucky forward Anthony Davis, who averaged 14.2 points, 10.4 rebounds and 4.7 blocks for the national champions last season. The Charlotte Bobcats used the second choice to take Davis' Kentucky teammate, forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. It's the first time in NBA draft history that college teammates were selected with the first two picks.

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The Washington Wizards took Florida guard Bradley Beal with the third pick in the NBA draft, marking the first time freshmen have been chosen with the first three picks. Syracuse guard Dion Waiters went to the Cleveland Cavaliers with the fourth selection. Sacramento had the fifth pick and used it on Kansas junior forward Thomas Robinson.

DALLAS (AP) — Lamar Odom is headed back to Los Angeles for a second chance with the Clippers and Mo Williams will be reunited with the Utah Jazz as part of a three-team deal with Dallas. That's according to a person with knowledge of the deal who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because a three-team deal between the Mavericks, Clippers and Jazz is contingent on Williams exercising his $8.5 million player option for next season. That person said that was expected to happen by Friday.

MIAMI (AP) — Miami Heat guard Dwyane (dwayn) Wade has announced he needs surgery on his left knee and will not play for the U.S. Olympic team in London this summer. Wade just helped the Heat win their second NBA championship in six years and was the leading scorer on the team that won Olympic gold in Beijing four years ago.

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Second seed Rafael Nadal (nah-DAHL') has made his earliest Grand Slam exit since 2005, losing 6-7, 6-4, 6-4, 2-6, 6-4 to Lukas Rosol (rah-SAHL') in the second round at Wimbledon today. At No. 100, Rosol is the lowest-ranked player to beat Nadal in a Grand Slam tournament. Nadal was seeking his third Wimbledon title and 12th Grand Slam crown.
