Jazz Trade No. 52 Pick To Rockets

11:00pm: Houston bought the No. 52 pick from Utah, Jonathan Feigen of The Houston Chronicle tweets, so there will be no future draft picks changing hands.

10:49pm: The Jazz will trade the No. 52 pick to the Rockets, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN tweets. Houston will select Purdue swingman Vince Edwards with the pick.

It’s not currently known what they’ll be giving up to buy back into the second round.

Edwards thrived in four seasons with the Boilermakers and could step into Houston’s rotation as a reliable, battled tested wing option. The 22-year-old shot .392 beyond the arc in four collegiate seasons.

    Well Melton gives them guard depth they needed, and he is a really good defender, which is obviously useful for them. Thought he’d go higher, although he is limited offensively

    Sounds like a good move in line with Houston’s style of play, maybe looking ahead in a year or two for if they loose, Ariza, Mbah a Moute or Tucker.
