WHERE ARE THEY NOW? The deep and star-studded 2011 NBA Draft class

The 2011 NBA Draft has proven to be one of the deepest classes in recent memory.

The class was highlighted by No. 1 pick Kyrie Irving, but perhaps most interesting is how many stars have developed from picks all over the class.

Klay Thompson was picked 11th, Kawhi Leonard was picked 15th, Jimmy Butler was picked 30th. Even Isaiah Thomas was picked 60th, the last pick of the draft!

Over time, the class has evolved into one of the deepest and most star-studded in NBA history. Here's where the picks are today.
