Rockets sign first-round draft picks

The Houston Rockets signed all three of their first-round selections from the 2012 NBA Draft: Connecticut guard/forward Jeremy Lamb, Iowa State forward Royce White and Kentucky forward Terrence Jones.

Lamb, the 12th overall pick, was just the sixth sophomore in UConn history to score 1,000 career points (1,060). He guided Connecticut to a National Championship in 2011 as a freshman.

The No. 16 overall pick, White, was the only player in the country in 2011-12 to lead his team in scoring (13.4 ppg), rebounding (9.3 rpg), assists (5.0 apg), steals (1.2 spg) and blocks (0.9 bpg) during his lone season at Iowa State.

Jones, the 18th overall pick, averaged 14.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 76 games over his two seasons with Kentucky. He helped the Wildcats win the 2012 National Championship.
