List of National Basketball Association undrafted players

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The National Basketball Association (NBA) holds an annual draft where teams select eligible players to join the league. While most NBA players are drafted, undrafted players occasionally earn roster spots as well.[1][2] Sometimes, they even outperform more celebrated draft picks.[3] The number of rounds in the draft has evolved since the first one in 1947.[4] The 1960 and 1968 drafts were 21 rounds, before settling at 10 rounds by 1974 (in 1977, however, the draft was held in eight); it was reduced to seven rounds in 1985. After negotiations with the National Basketball Players Association, the draft has been two rounds since 1989, leaving undrafted players free to negotiate with any team.[5]

Unlike with American football in the National Football League (NFL), undrafted players are less likely to become recognizable stars in the NBA.[6] While no modern day undrafted player has been elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame,[a] some have made significant contributions. John Starks was the first undrafted player in the modern day era to become an NBA All-Star in 1994,[8] while Ben Wallace was the first to be voted an All-Star starter in 2003.[9] In 15 seasons, Wallace played the most career games of any undrafted player with 1,088 games played. He won an NBA championship, was a four-time All-Star, and was a four-time winner of the NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award.[10] Udonis Haslem became the first player to lead a franchise (Miami) in career rebounds in 2012,[11] and was a member of each of the Heat's three championship teams.[12] Mike James from the 1998 draft was the first undrafted player to average 20 points in a season (20.3) in 2006.[13] Jorge Garbajosa was the first to be named All-Rookie First Team in 2007.[14] Troy Hudson, who enjoyed an 11-year NBA career after being passed over in the 1997 draft, alluded to his rise in his 2007 album Undrafted.[15][16]

Notes

  1. ^ Generally not included are George Mikan, who previously played with the Chicago American Gears of the National Basketball League in 1946 (before the NBA draft existed) before assigned to the Minneapolis Lakers in 1947 due to the Chicago team folding from that league, Connie Hawkins, who was assigned to the Phoenix Suns in 1969 due to winning a coin flip over the Seattle SuperSonics after he was not allowed to enter the league due to alleged college rule violations,[4][7] and Don Barksdale, who entered more as a contributor to the sport and league by breaking through racial barriers, which included being an NBA All-Star.
