Devonte Graham is the first Jayhawk off the board this year, being drafted 34th by Charlotte. Graham was reportedly given a 2nd round promise by someone in the league, although we don’t know if it was the Hornets. The 2018 Big 12 player of the year shot 40.6 percent from three, averaging 17.3 points per game.

With Charlotte rumored to be attempting to trade all star point guard Kemba Walker and with the only other point guards on the roster being Marcus Paige and Michael Carter Williams, there is definitely a path forward for Graham to earn playing time.
