Internationals Musa, Okobo selected in NBA Draft

June 22 2018 5:37 AM

The 2018 NBA Draft was void of its normal heavy international flare, but there were a few foreign players selected.

Real Madrid star Luka Doncic was the headliner, picked number three overall by the Atlanta Hawks before being traded to the Dallas Mavericks.

But there were two other international players picked by the second pick of the second round.

The Brooklyn Nets chose to select Dzanan Musa out of Bosnia at the end of the first.

The small forward has a small opt-out clause in his current contract and is believed to be ready to join the NBA now.

The Phoenix Suns then selected French point guard Elie Okobo with the 31st overall pick. He joined Deandre Ayton and Mikal Bridges as part of Phoenix's draft class.

Okobo is a good ball-handler with a developing shot. He could be a stash contender as he grows his game.
