The Stanford product’s selection comes six days after he was waived by the Lakers before his second NBA season began. Los Angeles originally acquired him with the No. 34 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Jaleel Roberts (Santa Cruz Warriors), Alex Hamilton (Oklahoma City Blue), Travis Leslie (Fort Wayne Mad Ants) and Chris Horton (Grand Rapids Drive) rounded out the Top 5.
