Lakers Use Draft Pick On Former Windward High School Star

(CBS) —The Los Angeles Lakers finally made their first pick in the NBA draft, selecting Darius Morris with the 41st overall pick.

Morris played his college basketball at the University of Michigan.

He did not sign with an agent and could return to school in Ann Arbor.

If the 6″5 guard does try and make the Lakers roster, he will be coming home; Morris attended Windward High School in Los Angeles.
