Grizzlies select Josh Selby in 2011 NBA Draft

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The Memphis Grizzlies, wanting to add

depth at guard, have selected Josh Selby out of Kansas with the

49th pick in Thursday night's NBA draft - their only pick of the

night.

Selby, a 6-foot-2, 183-pound scorer was a touted recruit out of

high school when he averaged 32 points and seven assists for Lake

Clifton High in Baltimore in 2009-10. But he fell down in the draft

with a poor freshman season at Kansas, where he was suspended for

the first nine games by the NCAA for accepting impermissible

benefits in high school.

In addition to the suspension, Selby was hampered in the latter

part of the season with a stress fracture to his foot.

He finished his only season at Kansas averaging 7.9 and 2.2

assists.
