Tyrese Haliburton Selected 12th Overall By The Sacramento Kings

Tyrese is going to California

NCAA Basketball: Kansas State at Iowa State Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

Tyrese Haliburton has become Iowa State’s first lottery pick in 20 years. The star PG was selected 12th overall by the Sacramento Kings.

Haliburton will join a roster with Iowa native Harrison Barnes and former Oklahoma guard Buddy Hield. The Kings went 31-41 last season and are in the same division as the Lakers and Warriors.

This will be an opportunity for Tyrese to gain playing time right away with a bunch of young pieces around him.
