PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The Portland Trail Blazers selected 6-foot-4 guard C.J. McCollum from Lehigh with the tenth pick in the NBA draft Thursday night.
McCollum was an electric scorer during an abbreviated senior season at Lehigh, averaging 23.9 points and 5.0 rebounds per game. McCollum's final college season ended on Jan. 5 with a broken foot.
McCollum averaged 21.3 points and 6.3 rebounds and shot 38 percent from 3-point range during his four-year Lehigh career. McCollum was named Patriot League player of the year during his freshman and junior seasons.
This is Portland's second consecutive year in the draft lottery. The Blazers used the No. 6 pick in 2012 to take guard Damian Lillard, who went on to become the NBA's Rookie of the Year.
Portland has three second-round picks.
