BE NBA draft equals ONE?

Postby Xavier2005 » Fri Jun 24, 2022 2:08 pm

If i read right, only one BE player was drafted in to the NBA on June 23, 2022. So, a fraction of 1% of the total NBA Draft. Not the best of year for the BE. Duke had 5 of their players drafted.

I'm not surprised by this. The NBA is rarely interested in 3 or 4-year players any more. They would rather get players into their own developmental systems. My team, the Warriors, has drafted 6 players in the last two years, all younger than 20. Jonathan Kuminga was 18.

yes, you are correct. Lately, the NBA "seldom" drafts a Junior or Senior out of college. Any college player deemed great by the NBA is taken after their first or second year of college. More foreign players or G League players being drafted lately.
