5 International Players Selected in 2020 NBA 2K League Draft - Here Are The Full Results

The 2020 NBA 2K League Draft was held last night at Terminal 5 in New York City. The 23 NBA 2K League teams selected 68 players to complete their rosters ahead of the league’s third season. 

Wizards District Gaming selected John “JBM” Mascone of Irvington, NY with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NBA 2K League Draft.  Knicks Gaming selected Christopher “Duck’ Charles with the second pick.  With the third pick, Kings Guard Gaming chose Rafel “Crush” Davis.    

There were five international players selected in the 2020 NBA 2K League Draft, including a historic pick in the fourth round when Hu “Luck_Yi_Wesley” Yi was chosen 56th overall by the Gen.G Tigers of Shanghai, becoming the first Chinese player drafted into the NBA 2K League.  Rounding out the international players selected were Sten “SAV” Valge-Saar (Canada, 7th overall to Lakers Gaming), Jomar “Jomar-12PR” Varela-Escapa (Puerto Rico, 23rd overall to Pacers Gaming), Brock “NIKO” Nikolakakos (Canada, 36th overall to Knicks Gaming) and Destiny “JoshJay” Idugboe (Canada, 59th overall to Cavs Legion GC).

Teams used the four-round NBA 2K League Draft to complete their six-player rosters for the 2020 season, which will begin with THE TIPOFF powered by AT&T.  The dates of THE TIPOFF and the complete 2020 season schedule will be announced in the near future.

The 228 draft-eligible players consisted of 147 new players who were selected by the league through the NBA 2K League Combine, 21 players from the 11 team-hosted Pro-Am tournaments, five players from the league’s first European Invitational, five players from the league’s second Asia-Pacific (APAC) Invitational, and 50 unretained players from the 2019 season.
