Espn no.8 Josh Green cut his final list to six schools. He gives his thoughts to Espn on each program. Villanova: "A great school. They have an extremely successful history, especially over the last few years, winning two national championships. They have a great coaching staff who are very good at developing the team and players and helping them get to the next level." UNLV: "An opportunity for me to be able to get back out on the court with my brother Jay again. This means a lot to me as he has helped me so much in my progression as a basketball player, and I'd love for us to win a Mountain West title and help keep the program getting better and better." UNC: "A program with amazing history and they are consistently successful both as a team, and also at developing players. Growing up as a kid it was my dream school, so it's very cool for me to be able to say I could have the opportunity to play there, and for Roy Williams." Kansas: "Also a school with a history of success, and they have had many good guards come through the school and achieve great things." Arizona: "They have been with me since the start. They have a great program and staff who have really developed players well and have been very successful every year in the Pac 12." USC: "They have already got about the best recruiting class in my age group, and will be a top team in 2019. Their program is very strong and I know I would come out a much better player."

As far as ESPN's draft analytics model is concerned, there was plenty of value to be found in the second round last night. In addition to these, the Mavericks picked up two talented players very late in Ray Spalding (Analytics Rank: 24) and Kostas Antetokounmpo (30).

Rockets take USC's Melton, trade for Purdue's Edwards

The Houston Rockets added USC guard De'Anthony Melton with the 46th pick in the NBA draft following a season where he was ruled ineligible because of an extra benefits scandal.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

Every draft model will yield at least slightly different results from another, but hard not to notice that the team that -- according to Ben Alamar's poll of executives -- best uses draft analytics (Rockets), took the player (De'Anthony Melton) that was ranked 13th by our model (and best available) with the 46th selection. Per the model, Melton has seventh-best chance to become an all-star caliber player in this class...the six players in front of him all were drafted in the top 10.
