Second draft for second round pick

Kings second round draftee Patrick Ewing Jr. may have been selected 43rd overall in the NBA draft last week, but the high flying forward was the Harlem Globetrotters top pick Wednesday.
In the Globetrotters' second annual player draft, the iconic exhibition team selected the offspring of a NBA legend. Ewing joins five other players drafted and invited to attend the Globetrotters' training camp in the fall as the team prepares for its 83rd consecutive season.
Also selected are 2008 State Farm College Slam Dunk Champion Sonny Weems of Arkansas, William Bullard of Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Tay Fisher of Siena, Longar Longar of Oklahoma and Donald Thomas of Auburn.
In the first player draft last year, the Globetrotters picked up Ant Atkinson, an All-American who won the Division II National Championship with Barton College.
