Two Ducks go in the second round

EUGENE — Oregon forwards Malik Hairston and Maarty Leunen were selected in the second round of Thursday's NBA draft.

Phoenix chose the 6-foot-6 Hairston with 48th overall pick, then shipped him to San Antonio for the Spurs' second-round pick, point guard Goran Dragic of Slovenia. The Suns also sent a second-round pick in 2009 and cash to the Spurs.

Houston selected Leunen with the 54th pick. If he makes the Rockets, he will be reunited with former Duck teammate Aaron Brooks.

A third Oregon prospect, Bryce Taylor, went undrafted Thursday night.
