The Memphis Grizzlies used the #2 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft to select Murray State’s Ja Morant. Morant is the highest-ever draft pick in Murray State history. As a sophomore, Morant became the first college player in history to average at least 20 points and ten assists for an entire season. He’s also the first consensus All-American in Murray State basketball history.
Morant will be officially introduced tomorrow at a news conference in Memphis.
