(Toronto) The Toronto Raptors picked guard Malachi Flynn at 29e rank in the NBA Draft Wednesday night.
The 22-year-old, six-foot-one, 185-pounder led San Diego State to a 30-2 record.
A native of Washington State, Flynn played two seasons with Washington State before joining the SDSU Aztecs.
With those, he provided 17.6 points and 5.1 assists per game, on average. His three-point shooting success rate was 37.3%.
“He’s had an incredible season,” said Raptors general manager Bobby Webster.
“He represents a good playmaker in the NBA today, effective for three points and high caliber in defense. ”
Flynn is known to be tough when it comes to screen and tenacious in defense.
“He’s a serious young man with a heart for victory,” said Webster.
The Raptors also held the 59e choice. They opted for guard Jalen Harris of the University of Nevada.
