KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) --- Christian Braun is the second Kansas Jayhawk player to be selected in the 2022 NBA Draft.

He was selected 21st by the Denver Nuggets.

Braun was a two-year starter for the Jayhawks and was an impact player for KU on their run to the National Championship.

The 6′6″ guard was named to the Big 12 All-Tournament Team and NCAA Tournament All-Midwest Region team.

Braun was 2018-19 Gatorade Player of the Year for the state of Kansas and a two-time all-state selection.

He finished his high school career with 1,074 points and was a member of three straight Kansas 6A state championship teams while at Blue Valley Northwest.

Braun was the second Jayhawk drafted in the first round. The Cleveland Cavaliers selected Kansas teammate Ochai Agbaji with the 14th pick in the draft.
