Where 2012 Second Rounders Are Playing

November 18 2012 at 10:21pm CST By Chuck Myron

Unlike last year, when No. 5 overall pick Jonas Valanciunas remained in Lithuania, all 30 first-round picks from the 2012 draft are in the NBA this season. Only 20 of the 30 second-round picks from this June have NBA contracts. We looked at the status of the second-rounders back in September, when many of them remained unsigned, but now that the season is under way, all 30 are playing pro basketball somewhere, even if it's not in the Association. This list tells you where those players wound up, and also provides contract details for each of the second-rounders with NBA deals.
