Former Randallstown Star Picked in NBA Draft

Kim English was picked by Detroit in the second round of Thursday night's NBA draft.

Former Randallstown Star Picked in NBA Draft

Kim English gave Thursday's NBA Draft a bit of a local flavor.

English played basketball for Randallstown High School before moving on to play at Missouri. He grew into a solid player there, and the Detroit Pistons noticed, picking him in the second round of the draft.

English is a 6-foot-6-inch, 200-pound guard who became an outstanding player with Missouri. He made the Big 12 All-Tournament Team and earned Most Outstanding Player honors this past season. 

In addition, he made second team All-Big 12 (CBSSports.com), third-team All-Big 12 (coaches) and honorable mention All-Big 12 (Associated Press) this year. 

Detroit director of player personnel George David said, in an article on mlive.com Friday morning, that they liked English because he's not only a good long-range shooter but tough on defense.

"He definitely stretches the floor with his 3-point shooting," David said. "But I think more so than that, we've been really wanting a guy that can really be a strong perimeter defender."
