Every year well known collegiate basketball stars go undrafted but this doesn’t mean that they won’t make a living playing basketball professionally somewhere around the world. A select few of these undrafted players will even make their way into the NBA. Fans are often left wondering “What happened to ____? He was pretty good in college” for the rest of these guys.
This should help answer that question.
Please comment with any players that you would like to see added to the list!

This year wasn’t quite as unpredictable and crazy as some people anticipated but there were still a fare share of surprises. I’m not talking about the kind of surprises like the Timberwolves finding out the player they thought was 21 actually turning out to be 26 (I hate when that happens..), but a few first round selections were pretty unexpected.
Each year it’s also good to analyze which prospects fell too far or are underrated. It’s best to read up on the sleeper picks now and be ready when they start to turn heads in the NBA.
Had a great podcast show with AC's Spotlight and Rafelito reviewing most of the NBA draft and getting my overall impressions. A little long but it's definitely worth a listen!

This was highly publicized as the “weakest draft ever!” by a lot of the media. I wouldn’t be that harsh but it definitely lacked star power. The good thing is that every team selects from the same talent pool so we can compare.
