NEW YORK (AP) — The Detroit Pistons selected Oklahoma State’s Cade Cunningham with the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft Thursday night.

Cunningham had been widely expected to be the first name called in New York.

The 6-foot-8 point guard was an Associated Press first-team All-American as a freshman with the Cowboys.

He averaged 20.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.5 assists at Oklahoma State.

G League preps-to-pros teenager Jalen Green went to Houston with the No. 2 pick.

They headline a draft class that includes top prospects like Southern California freshman big man Evan Mobley and Gonzaga freshman point guard Jalen Suggs.

The NBA Draft is broadcast on ABC, ESPN, and NBA TV.
