Oklahoma City Thunder
Isaiah Roby (born February 3, 1998) is an American professional basketball player for the Oklahoma City Thunder of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He played college basketball for the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
He ended Nebraska's NBA draft drought. Roby is Nebraska's first NBA draft pick in 20 years - since the Rockets selected Venson Hamilton at No. 50 in 1999.
High school success. Coming out of Dixon High School in Illinois, Roby was the state's fifth-ranked recruit of the 2016 class, according to 247Sports.
Roby and his two brothers grew up in a home built by Habitat for Humanity, raised by their single mother, Danielle, who often held down multiple jobs. Isaiah worked, as he has put it, as "the world's tallest restaurant host" to help pay his AAU costs.
