With the 52nd overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft the Utah Jazz tabbed Purdue forward Vince Edwards.

However, multiple NBA beat reporters say the Jazz have traded the rights to Edwards to the Houston Rockets.

Edwards completed his career as the first Purdue player in history with 1,500 points, 700 rebounds, and 400 assists.

The six-foot-eight Edwards averaged 14.6 points and 7.4 rebounds as a senior. He’s a career 39.2% shooter from 3-point range.
