The Mad Ants chose a pair of guards from the Big Sky Conference in their first two picks of the NBA Development League draft Thursday night.
Cameron Jones, a 6-foot-4 guard from Northern Arizona, was the team's first-round pick and 10th overall, and the Ants then chose 6-3 guard Anthony Johnson of Montana as their second-round choice.
Jones averaged 20.2 points, 3.1 assists and 4.6 rebounds last season at Northern Arizona, while Johnson averaged 19.2 points in his senior season at Montana, which was in 2010. Last season Johnson played in Cyprus.
"They were both very high on our board," Ants coach Joey Meyer said. "Both are wing players. With what we have coming back, we thought we needed a wing scorer, and in fact, we picked up two wing scorers. We're real happy with that."
The Ants traded their third-round pick last season, and will have five remaining picks in the eight-round draft.
