BROOKLYN (WLFI) — Former Purdue All-American guard Carsen Edwards was selected by the Philadelphia 76ers in the second round of the 2019 NBA Draft Thursday night. Edwards was traded to the Boston Celtics with the pick on draft night. 

Edwards was the third player selected from the Big Ten Conference in the draft, joining Indiana's Romeo Langford and Michigan's Jordan Poole. 

During his junior season in West Lafayette, Edwards averaged 24.3 points per game, including a break-out performance in the 2019 NCAA Tournament. Purdue's run to the Elite-8 was highlighted by Edward's 42 point performances against defending national champion Villanova in the round of 32, and now current champion Virginia in the Elite-8. 

Edwards made back-to-back first team All-Big Ten honors in his sophomore and junior seasons, garnering consensus second team All-America honors in 2018-19. The Atascocita, Texas native finished his Purdue career with 1,920 points.
