Belmont star Dylan Windler was one of college basketball's most-entertaining players during the 2018-19 season.

Windler, a 6-foot-8 guard, was one of the most-potent scorers in the country, averaging 21.3 points a game while shooting 43 percent from the 3-point line.

The Belmont star was considered a late first-round pick and that's where he's gone.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have selected Windler at No. 25 overall.

Early reports suggested that the Cavs would be taking Kentucky's Keldon Johnson, though Cleveland went in another direction. This led to a tough scene at the draft.

That's pretty brutal, though hopefully Johnson will end up in a good situation.

The NBA Draft is still airing on ESPN.
