BROOKLYN, Ny. (FOX 56) – Shaedon Sharpe’s basketball journey has reached the NBA. The Portland Trailblazers selected Sharpe 7th overall in the 2022 NBA Draft.

Sharpe was a No. 1 ranked recruit coming out of high school, and joined Kentucky midseason during the 2021-22 run. He never suited up for the Wildcats but was mocked as a first-round pick all season long.
