Grizzlies swap future picks for Rabb, Brooks in 2nd round

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) The Memphis Grizzlies just couldn't sit out the NBA draft, so they swapped a future second-round selection apiece for a pair of second-round players Thursday night.

The Grizzlies landed power forward Ivan Rabb of California with the 35th pick in a draft-night trade with the Orlando Magic, then made a deal with the Houston Rockets for the rights to shooting forward Dillon Brooks of Oregon. Memphis selected Brooks with the 45th pick.

The 6-foot-10 Rabb had been considered a possible lottery pick a year ago before deciding to return to California for his sophomore season. He averaged 14 points and 10.5 rebounds per game this season while leading the Pac-12 in rebounding. He started 64 of his 65 games at California and averaged 13.2 points and 9.5 rebounds in his two-year stint.
