GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) -- The New York Knicks selected Wichita State forward Cleanthony Early with the 34th pick in the NBA draft Wednesday night.

A 6-foot-7 Early averaged 16.4 points and 5.9 rebounds last season as senior, both team highs.

New York acquired the No. 34 pick Wednesday in a trade with the Dallas Mavericks.

The Knicks have another second-round selection, 51st overall, the other pick acquired from Dallas.
