2012 NBA Draft Results: Jared Cunningham Selected By Cavaliers With No. 24 Pick

With the No. 24 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Cleveland Cavaliers selected Jared Cunningham, a shooting guard from Oregon State as part of a draft-day deal with the Dallas Mavericks.

Cunningham, an athletic 6'4 190 combo guard, was under the radar for most of the season playing for a mediocre Oregon State team. As a junior, he averaged 18 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists on 51 percent shooting.

In the NBA, he will need to improve his perimeter shooting (34 percent from deep) as well as his decision-making, but he has the athleticism to get to the rim and defend on the perimeter in the NBA.
