Both Ohio State Buckeyes that kept their names in the 2022 NBA Draft have discovered where they will begin their professional careers.

Freshman guard Malaki Branham was selected 20th overall by the San Antonio Spurs. Branham stepped up late in the season for Ohio State, as he averaged 20 points per game in the last ten games for the Buckeyes.

Meanwhile, the New Orleans Pelicans added E.J. Liddell with the 41st overall pick. The junior led the team in points and rebounds per game while converting almost half of his field goal attempts.
