Houston Rockets pick LSU basketball’s Tari Eason in 2022 NBA Draft

LSU basketball forward Tari Eason was named with the 17th overall pick in the first round of the 2022 NBA Draft by the Houston Rockets.

Eason averaged 16.9 points and 6.6 rebounds in 33 games for LSU. He shot 56.4% from two-point range, 35.9% on three-pointers, and forced nearly three laps into the game.

The sophomore spent only one season in Baton Rouge after moving from Cincinnati, averaging 7.3 points and 5.9 rebounds. Despite his big numbers at LSU, Eason came off the bench in all but four matches and because of that he won the SEC Sixth-Man of the Year.

Here are the pros and cons of choosing a rocket.
