Recent History of 44th Overall NBA Draft Pick

Although the first round of the NBA draft is the most exciting of the two, the second round tends to be the most intriguing, as the remaining teams try to select the best, underrated starlets left on the board that could potentially provide the talent needed to anchor their franchise.

We’ve seen this with players like Manu Ginobili, Marc Gasol, Draymond Green, and most notably, back-to-back MVP Winner Nikola Jokic. Though it can be challenging to find those ‘diamonds in the rough,’ every year presents another opportunity for a handful of teams to secure that overlooked, rising star or two that can be something special in this league.
