Sorry Nike Al, I meant to add to the criteria that they could be Australian and only played in the NBA.

Depends on how far you go back. The NBA draft had a squillion rounds back in the late 70s and early 80s. Leroy Loggins was drafted, for example.

I think CJ Bruton and Paul Rogers were drafted. And Simon Dwight was offered a contract but didn't take it, if that makes your list.

I'm pretty sure Mark Davis was drafted and Al Green was drafted to the NFL, does that count?

Some great feedback for me guys, cheers.

Thanks for that list natwhereyouat, excellent.

SVD you are correct about Woodberry, my bad. But Talford was drafted but didn't play and Newley was picked 54th by Houston.

I knew that Al Green was drafted in the NFL crazy.

I guess I could include Kyrie Irving on this list as he was born in Aust.
