Houston Rockets take Green with No. 2 pick in NBA draft
HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Rockets selected Jalen Green with the second overall pick in the NBA draft.
Green joins a team that is rebuilding after sinking to an NBA-worst 17-55 last season after James Harden forced a trade to Brooklyn to end a streak of eight consecutive playoff trips.
The shooting guard comes to the Rockets after going straight from high school in California to the NBA G League.
The 6-foot-6, 186-pound Green averaged 17.9 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 2.8 assists a game for the Ignite last season.
