Another Iowa State basketball player joined the professional ranks on Saturday.

Forward Cameron Lard was drafted by the College Park Sky Hawks as the No. 11 overall pick in the G-League draft.

Lard played for the Cyclones last season and was a key contributor in their close game with Ohio State in the NCAA Tournament.

Lard averaged 5.6 points and 2.8 rebounds last season in what turned out to be a turmoil filled year for the 6’9″ forward.

The Sky Hawks are an affiliate of the Atlanta Hawks of the NBA.
