BROOKLYN, NY — University of Michigan, freshman men’s basketball playerCaleb Houstonwas chosen by the Orlando Magic in the second round (32nd overall) of the 2022 NBA Draft Thursday night (June 23) at the Barclays Center. Classmate Moussa Diabate joined Houston in the second round after being selected in the second round (43rd overall) by the Los Angeles Clippers.

Houston, the third freshman Wolverine to leave early for the NBA Draft, becomes the 64th UM player of all time to be drafted into the NBA. He joins No. 1 overall pick Paolo Banchero (Duke) as well as former Wolverines Franz and Moritz Wagner and Ignas Brazdeikis in Orlando.

Houstan, one of two Wolverines to start all 34 games last season, averaged 10.1 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists in his lone season in Ann Arbor. Posting double figures in half of his games (17), he had back-to-back career-high games of 21 points against Rutgers (February 23) and No. 15 Illinois (February 27).

With 55 percent of his long-range attack, Houston led the Wolverines with 60 three-pointers. He became the first Michigan freshman to eclipse 50 in a season since Ignas Brazdeikis (56; 2018-19), who is also from Mississauga, Ontario. In addition to his scoring, Houston had 11 games with 5+ rebounds, taking career-best 10 twice against Tarleton State (November 24) and Wisconsin (February 10).

Diabate, the fourth freshman from UM to enter the NBA Draft, impressed with his high energy and high-profile dunks. From 26 out of 32 games, he posted nine points and six rebounds per game, helping him earn Big Ten All-Freshman Team honors. He highlighted his 13 double-digit games with a career-best 28 points in Iowa (February 17), where he finished 12-for-15 from the field and grabbed eight rebounds.

In addition to those eight rebounds against the Hawkeyes, he took 5+ boards in 23 games, including a career-best 13 against Minnesota (Dec. 11) — one of his two 10-plus rebound games. He was second shooting on the team in field goal percentage (.542) and 28 blocks. Combine with Hunter Dickinson‘s 49, the duo was good for 77 of the 112 blocks of UM.

The Houston and Diabatemarks roster marks the 16th time UM has had multiple players selected during the same draft. The last was in 2021 when Franz Wagner was selected eighth by the Orlando Magic and Isaiah Lives, who was selected by his home state of Detroit Pistons with the 42nd pick.

Despite not being drafted, graduated guards Eli Brooks and The Vante’ Jones are seeking free agent deals to play in the NBA Summer League, which will take place July 7-17 at the Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilion on the UNLV campus. All 75 games of the 11-day competition will be televised live on ESPN networks or NBA TV.
