It was a big night for UNLV basketball players in the NBA draft.

Two players were selected.

The Orlando Magic took Stephen Zimmerman as its 41st pick.

Zimmerman's former teammate Patrick McCaw went three picks earlier at No. 38 to the Milwaukee Bucks, who agreed to trade him to the Golden State Warriors.

This is the first time since 1991 that UNLV has had 2 players taken in the draft in the same year.
