INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- The Cleveland Cavaliers used their final pick in the second round of the NBA draft to take Serbian forward Milan Macvan.

The Cavs selected the 6-foot-9 Macvan, who averaged 7.8 points and 2.4 rebounds in Europe last season, with the No. 54 overall pick.

Earlier in the second round, they drafted Richmond forward Justin Harper before trading his rights to Orlando for second-round picks in 2013 and 2014.

Macvan is somewhat of an unknown, and the Cavs figured they'd take a shot with him.
