PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The Portland Trail Blazers will have four total picks in June's NBA draft.

The Blazers got the 11th pick in Wednesday's draft lottery, but also picked up the 6th overall pick from New Jersey. Portland acquired the conditional first-round pick from the Nets in the Gerald Wallace trade at the deadline.

Portland also has the 40th and 41st picks in the June 28 draft. The New Orleans Hornets drew the No. 1 pick overall -- which they almost certainly will use to select Kentucky star Anthony Davis.

Portland finished the lockout-shortened season 28-38 and out of the playoffs for the first time in four years. The rebuilding team is currently without a general manager or a head coach.
