PICK A CARD: Panini America, the NBA's exclusive trading-card licensee, has signed seven top-projected NBA Draft picks. The agreements grant Panini exclusive rights to produce autographed trading cards with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Thomas Robinson, Harrison Barnes, Jared Sullinger, Austin Rivers, John Henson and Andre Drummond. Since the lockout delayed the start of the '11-12 season, Panini also will release "rookie" cards before the start of the '12-13 season with players who were actually rookies this past season, including Rookie of the Year Cavaliers G Kyrie Irving, T'Wolves F Derrick Williams and Nuggets F Kenneth Faried. Panini's "12-13 HOOPS" trading cards will be released Aug. 8. Panini had five NBA releases during the '11-12 season, and will have 25 in '12-13.
