Don’t expect a Canadian to be picked in the 2020 NBA draft


Click the above video to see the breakdown of Canadian players available in this years draft and why they won’t be selected.

The NBA is the most difficult sports league in the world to be drafted in.

With only two rounds of selections and a total of 60 picks you literally have a better chance of winning the lottery than being selected as a lottery pick in the NBA draft.

2019 was a banner year for Canadians with six players being picked amongst the 60 selections led by RJ Barrett going No.3 overall to the New York Knicks.

However, don’t expect to see similar success for Canadians in the 2020 draft.

Here are the Canadian players eligible:

Nate Darling – Delaware. 6-foot-5 guard from Halifax, NS.

Karim Mane – Vanier College. 6-foot-5 guard from Montreal, QC.

Isiaha Mike – Southern Methodist University. 6-foot-8 forward from Scarborough, ON.

Jermaine Haley – West Virginia. 6-foot-7 guard from Vancouver, BC.

This is not to say that any of these players won’t make it to the NBA because most will get an opportunity to play pro via the G-League or Europe. However, don’t expect to hear their name called on draft night.
