Dallas select Josh Green with the 18th pick

Great result for a promising player and club on the rise.

We're pretty used to Aussies making the NBA these days but this is still pretty big. How many first round picks (or draft picks in general) do we have now?

And Kyrie Irving, 2011 (1st round #1)

Nah he's not an Aussie. He might've been born here but only spent the first couple of years of his life here as his father Drederick was out here playing as an import in the SEABL at the time. When Kyrie was two years old they and his American mother all moved back to the US where he's been ever since and even has said himself he considers himself 100% American.

Fun fact: When Kyrie was born Drederick's coach at Bulleen was Brett Brown.

And if we're going to try and claim Irving as an Aussie even though he doesn't want it then we can't also claim Aron Baynes who was born in NZ and his family didn't relocate to Australia until he was 3 years old.

Apparently he played for the Breakers last season.

Green should be our 24th NBA player.
Magnay and Landale could potentially bring total up to 26.

Other than Giddey, Ķing and Maker are there any other prospects with a chance of making the NBA?

There's also guys that are NOW aussies that have played in the NBA

Rob Rose, Copeland, Grace (did he have his citizenship when he had his stint in Atlanta?), Mee, Brooks and soon Cotton.

I know its a grey area.

To be fair Cram all the above including Grace were not Aussies at the time they played.

A separate list of NBL to NBA or vice versa would be a good list if anyone can compile such a list.

Magnay is expected to be picked up this season.

I can't say who else is projected to, but I wouldn;t think it impossible for DJ Vasilejic. Kouat Noi is another prospect, as is (apparently, but I don't see it) Sam Frolling.

Tamuri Wigness is an exciting prospect but he will probably be seen as too short to play in the league.
