Big 12 NBA Draft History: With the 55th Overall Pick...

Best Big 12 Player Drafted #55: Kris Clack, Texas Longhorns, by the Boston Celtics in 1999.
Some may credit Clack with UT landing LaMarcus Aldridge, Kevin Durant and a slew of others, since Clack was the first McDonald's All-American to sign with the Horns in school history.

Other Notable Big 12 Players Drafted 55th: Rickey Paulding, Missouri Tigers, by the Detroit Pistons in 2004.

Best Non-Big 12 Player Drafted 55th: Lawrence Roberts, Mississippi St. Bulldogs, by the Seattle Supersoncis in 2005. For those that remember, Roberts started his career as a Baylor Bear but left after the basketball scandal that rocked the school, conference and nation. After being named Big 12 Freshman of the Year he later was selected as SEC Player of the Year and was an All American in 2003-04.

In preparation for the 2011 NBA Draft, each day until June 23 we'll count down the best Big 12 player drafted with each pick. This list only takes into account players who played in the Big 12, so it starts with the 1997 draft. In total 70 Big 12 alumni have been selected, filling 43 of the 60 possible slots.
