The Oklahoma City Thunder, via trade select Xavier's Semaj Christon 55th overall in NBA Draft
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Leaving early proved to be worth the wait.
With just a handful of picks remaining in the NBA Draft, Xavier sophomore guard Semaj Christon's dreams came true when the Miami Heat selected him 55th overall. Christon's rights were then acquired by the Charlotte Hornets via trade and later sent to the Oklahoma City Thunder, pending league approval.
Christon led Xavier in scoring in both of his seasons as a Musketeer, and was a unanimous first team All-Big East selection this past season. His selection secures a player from a college in the state of Ohio selected in the NBA Draft for the 23rd consecutive year.
