Draft Rights Held Players

Each year around draft time you’ll hear the term draft-and-stash being tossed around in regard to international players and late second-round picks, but what happens to these players? It seems like the majority of them stay overseas and never make it to the NBA. The truth is the very best of these players are honing their skills in some of the best leagues around the world. The remainder become trade assets for the teams holding their rights.

This season we have seen five such players join the league after having been stashed overseas. The most recent was Furkan Aldemir, who joined the 76ers last month nearly two and a half years after he was drafted. Others, like Chicago’s Nikola Mirotic and Brooklyn’s Bojan Bogdanovic, have made strong impressions in their rookie seasons. Kostas Papanikolaou and Lucas Nogueira, in Houston and Toronto respectively, also have debuted this season after playing last season abroad. All five players have plenty of skill and potential to boot and all have something else in common. Every one of those five players was drafted by a different team and their rights were traded elsewhere.

Usually, if a player doesn’t come over within two years of having been drafted, he will never make the leap. Mirotic and Bogdanovic are two exceptions to the rule, as both joined their teams three years later, but both were highly regarded prospects to begin with. Only five other such cases exist in the last 10 drafts, with Joel Freeland (six years later) standing as the only player to stay overseas longer than three years after he was drafted and still make the NBA jump. From 2005-2012, there were 90 international players drafted who played their predraft seasons overseas. Fifty-five of them, or 61.1%, have made their NBA debuts. Twenty-nine of those players were first-round picks, and all except for Fran Vazquez (the 11th pick in 2005) and Petteri Koponen (the 30th pick in 2007) have played in the NBA at some point.  That’s a 93.1% success rate!  That also means the success rate for second-round picks is just 45.9% (28 of 61).  It’s even grimmer if we take just the second half of the second round (picks 46-60), wherein just 13 of 36, or 36.1%, of players have worn a NBA jersey.

While not all players pan out the way teams expect them to, they at worst become tradeable assets for teams that don’t want to part with a future second-round pick.  Each team must give up something in a trade, which is why you will see a lot of top-55 protected second-round picks moving around the league.  Older draft rights held players who clearly will never come over to the NBA are essentially the same, for all intents and purposes.  One recent example is 2004 draft pick Serhiy Lishchuk.  At the beginning of the season, Lishchuk’s draft rights were held by Houston.  On December 19th, Houston took part in a 3-team trade that netted them Corey Brewer.  In that deal, Houston sent out a combination of three future second-round picks to Minnesota and Philadelphia.  Instead of sending a fourth pick, Houston sent Lishchuk’s rights to Philly.  About two weeks later, Philly acquired Jared Cunningham from the Clippers with the sole intention of waiving his contract.  Not wanting to part with an asset of any value (even top-55 protected picks can end up being conveyed), the sole asset that the Sixers sent out was the rights to Lishchuk.

So, with all that being said, here’s the list of all current players who still have their draft rights held by a NBA team:
