NEW YORK -- Former Juneau basketball star Carlos Boozer was picked by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second round of the NBA draft Wednesday.
Boozer was the 35th pick overall. He joins the ranks of former Anchorage basketball star Trajan Langdon, a three-year member of the Cavaliers who is currently a free agent in search of a team.
Boozer, a center at Duke University, will be a power forward in the NBA.
In April, Boozer signed with an agent, a decision that cost him his remaining year of college eligibility with the Blue Devils.
In his junior year at Duke, Boozer averaged 18.2 points and a team-high 8.7 rebounds a game. He averaged 13.3 points a game as a sophomore and 12.5 as a freshman.
