NBA DRAFT: Houston Rockets pick Jabari Smith from Auburn



HOUSTON – In his one year at Auburn University, Jabari Smith was chosen as National Freshman of the Year and SEC Freshman of the Year. He was also voted the Karl Malone Power Forward of the Year.

Smith averaged 16.9 points and 7.4 rebounds, with season highs of 31 points in February against Vanderbilt and 15 rebounds in March against Miami (FL).

Smith was widely viewed by many mock drafts as the consensus prediction for the first overall pick before the Orlando Magic opted instead on Thursday for Duke’s Paolo Banchero.

Sourabh Verma,From Franklin Tn - Sub-editor in Asian News International(ANI) I am a detailed-driven journalist with 3+ years of experience in news writing and copy-editing, I can file quick, compelling and error-free stories as they break. I have sound knowledge of national and international issues and have covered stories across beats, including politics, parliament, legal and crime like drugs and Human Trafficking at Asian News International (ANI), where I currently work. Some of these include extensive coverage of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, several state Assembly elections, Parliament sessions, COVID-19 pandemic and other stories of national importance. A typical working day involves copy-editing dozens of drafts, managing junior sub-editors in shifts and keeping an eye on developing stories. This added responsibility followed a couple of years of filing stories based on press briefings, bytes and inputs from reporters on the ground.
