NBA Draft

De NBA Draft zorgt ervoor dat jonge basketbalspelers zich kandidaat kunnen stellen om in de NBA te spelen. Elk team mag bij de draft dan 2 spelers selecteren, 1 in de eerste ronde en 1 in de tweede ronde. De teams die de play-offs niet halen komen in een loterij terecht waar het lot bepaalt wie als eerste een speler mag selecteren, met meer kans voor diegenen die het slechtste presteerden in het seizoen.

Vroeger stelden vooral spelers aan de colleges zich kandidaat, terwijl nu veel meer internationale spelers en Highschool (middelbare school) spelers in de draft belanden. In 2006 is er een leeftijdslimiet van 19 jaar ingevoerd, teneinde het niveau van zowel NBA als college basketbal op te krikken.
