TORONTO (AP) - The Toronto Raptors have selected Connecticut forward DeAndre Daniels with the No. 37 overall pick in Thursday's NBA draft.
Daniels, a junior who averaged a career-high 13.1 points and 6.0 rebounds last season, helped lead the Huskies to their fourth NCAA men's basketball title in school history. The 22-year-old started 38 of Connecticut's 40 games and had the second most blocks on the team with 54.
Raptors coach Dwane Casey says Daniels is athletic, and adds that the 6-foot-9, 195-pounder's length and activity caught the team's attention during workouts. Casey says he was looking forward to seeing Daniels, who has three-point range, at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
The Raptors made a surprise move with their first pick, taking 18-year-old Brazilian forward Bruno Caboclo No. 20 overall.
