COLUMBIA, Mo--Only one Mizzou Tiger was picked in Thursday night's NBA draft.

And that was guard Jordan Clarkson.

The Washington Wizards picked the San Antonio native in the second round with the 46th pick overall.

And then the Wizards sent Clarkson to the Los Angeles Lakers for cash.

Clarkson is a 6-5 guard who averaged 17 points and nearly four rebounds a game in his only season at Mizzou.

Clarkson transfered to Columbia after a couple of seasons in Tulsa and left Mizzou with a year of eligibility left.

Jarbari Brown also left Mizzou early but nobody drafted him.
