Video: Arsalan Kazemi reflects on his time as an Oregon Duck

Jul 3, 2013

Soon Arsalan Kazemi will be battling for rebounds alongside some of the world's best players in NBA summer league action. But before he steps on the court as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers, the former Duck talks about his lone, memorable season in Eugene.

Kazemi became the first Iranian-born player to be taken in the NBA Draft, selected 54th overall last Thursday by the Washington Wizards and then traded to Philadelphia. Kazemi broke Oregon's single-season rebounding record with 350 boards after transferring from Rice. He also tallied 71 steals, the second-most by a Duck in a single season.
