HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Rockets have selected Murray State guard Isaiah Canaan with the 34th overall selection in the NBA draft.
Canaan was a two-time Ohio Valley Conference player of the year. He led Murray State in scoring in each of the last three seasons. He scored in double figures in all of his 31 games last season, averaging 21.8 points, 4.3 assists and 1.5 steals a game.
He scored more than 2,000 points in his four-year career with the Racers.
The speedy scorer joins a fast-paced Rockets team that made the playoffs for the first time since 2009 led by the trio of James Harden, Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons. They rallied from a 3-0 first-round deficit before being eliminated by Oklahoma City in Game 6.
