Former Lincoln High star and UCLA guard Norman Powell was taken by the Milwaukee Bucks with the No. 46 overall pick in the NBA Draft.

However, Powell’s draft rights were traded to the Toronto Raptors shortly after he was picked.

After graduating from Lincoln in 2011, Powell, who spent four seasons at UCLA, averaged 9.8 points, 1.5 assists and 1.1 steals in his career as a Bruin.

He exploded in his senior year for college career-highs in points per-game (16.4), assists per-game (2.1) and rebounds per-game (4.7).

Powell joins former Utah guard Delon Wright as the Raptors’ other draft pick.
