Houston takes Auburn's Jabari Smith with third overall pick

HOUSTON (AP) After falling to the third overall pick by the Houston Rockets after most projected him to go No. 1 in the NBA draft, Jabari Smith Jr. wasn't worried about the two teams that didn't pick him. He was looking ahead to how he'll help the one that did.

"Ultimately I just want to win championships and be labeled as a winner, always deep in the playoffs, somebody always competing for championships," Smith said. "That's what I want to be."

Rockets general manager Rafael Stone was thrilled that Smith was still available when their slot came up.
