Thread strictly dedicated to international picks that could go in the first round. A lot of draft profiles are incomplete on these players as the draft sites don't see a lot on them. I'm not including any players that played college ball in America, like Len.

He tore his meniscus and ACL in his left knee on April 4. He had surgery on the meniscus on April 30th, but has not yet had the surgery on his ACL, which will be done relatively soon.
This likely means he will be out for the majority (or more likely, all) of the 2013-14 season.
He's under cont...
| Pelicans Talk|| Does tonight's lottery shape the pace of our rebuild? - Fun Bunch on 5/21/13 at 9:20 am|
If we get in the top 3, are we more unlikely to trade the pick? We will take a player that we think will be a future starter. Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of stars in this draft, so almost any player we select will take a little bit to develop.
That would mean we continue with a slower rebui...
