Tyrese Haliburton Draft Night Media call

Former Iowa State guard Tyrese Haliburton talks with the media on draft night after being selected No. 12 by the Sacramento Kings in the 2020 NBA Draft.

Once viewed as a sub-150 prospect in Iowa State's 2018 recruiting class, Tyrese Haliburton made Iowa State history in the NBA Draft on Wednesday. 

Haliburton was selected by the Sacramento Kings with the 12th overall pick, making himself Iowa State's 10th first round pick in program history.

The former Cyclone's selection makes him the first first-round pick for Iowa State since 2012 when Royce White was taken 16th overall by the Houston Rockets.
