MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The Memphis Grizzlies have selected LSU forward Jarell Martin with their first-round pick in the NBA draft.

The 6-foot-10 Martin was the 25th overall selection.

He was an honorable mention Associated Press All-America selection this past season. He averaged 16.9 points and 9.2 rebounds to rank third in the Southeastern Conference in both categories.

Martin will give the Grizzlies another double-double candidate in points and rebounds to complement veteran power forward Zach Randolph. Martin had 15 double-doubles last season, including five in his final seven games.

Possessing strong hands and an explosive first step, the 235-pound Martin blossomed during the final two months of the season. He averaged 17.5 points and 9.5 rebounds in February and March.
