Draft Grade: B+
Count me as a fan of Isaiah Canaan, the Murray State guard selected by the Houston Rockets with the #34 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, the fourth pick of the second round. Canaan is another small-conference player that can put points on the board, and the Rockets are typically quite savvy in the second round (see: Chase Budinger, Chandler Parsons).
There are a few guards on the board that I prefer, so I can’t grade this higher than a B+, but overall this is a solid selection. The picks are coming hot and heavy in the second round, so stay tuned to all of the trade news….
