Former University of Missouri basketball player Jordan Clarkson was selected as the 46th overall pick in the NBA draft last night, and ended up with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Clarkson, a transfer who played for MU for one season, was drafted in the second round by the Washington Wizards, who then sent the draft rights to the Lakers for cash considerations. No other MU players were drafted this year.
