Rockets take Wisconsin's Sam Dekker with 18th pick in draft

HOUSTON (AP) When Sam Dekker gets back home after his trip to New York for the NBA draft he might throw out some of the winter clothes he's had to wear for most of his life.

Dekker, who was born and spent his whole life in Wisconsin, is heading to sunny and snow-free Houston after the Rockets selected the Badgers forward with the 18th overall pick in the draft on Thursday night.

"I'm excited. It's going to be crazy to get rid of some of those coats in the winter," he said. "Not having to have those is going to be kind of nice and to be able to go outside whenever I want."
