The GTA and the NBA

The GTA and the NBA

The NBA Draft is tonight. Several Canadians, mostly from the GTA, are likely to be drafted.

That would make this by far the best NBA draft for Canadian talent.  The previous high for Canadians drafted was three, set in 1983 and 2012.  This year, three Canadians may go in the first round alone.

Here are 8 Canadians with a shot at being drafted tonight. Note that seven of them are from the GTA.

  • Andrew Wiggins of Thornhill, Ontario
  • Nik Stauskas of Mississauga, Ontario
  • Tyler Ennis of Brampton, Ontario
  • Melvin Ejim of Toronto, Ontario
  • Jordan Bachynski of Toronto, Ontario
  • Dwight Powell of Toronto, Ontario
  • Sim Bhullar of Toronto, Ontario
  • Khem Birch of Montreal, Quebec

Toronto has become a basketball factory. Go figure...
