The New York Knicks selected Michigan freshman forward Ignas Brazdeikis with the 47th pick in the 2019 NBA draft this evening at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Brazdeikis was the 11th Wolverine under John Beilein to be drafted in the NBA and the second to be selected in the 2019 NBA Draft, joining Jordan Poole.

The Sacramento Kings selected Brazdeikis, but the pick was traded to the New York Knicks.

Brazdeikis averaged 14.8 points, 5.4 rebounds and .8 assists per game as a freshman. He is the first and only one-and-done prospect that John Beilein recruited to Michigan.
