Eleven French people pre-registered for the next draft


This season, three new French players have discovered the NBA: Killian Hayes (Detroit) by being drafted in 7th position (unheard of for a tricolor), Théo Maledon (Oklahoma City) by being drafted in 34th position, and Killian Tillie (Memphis ), not drafted but hired a little later by the Grizzlies. How many will be drafted on July 29 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn?

Among the eleven players, three played in the NCAA last season. To start with Joel ayayi (brother of French international Valériane Ayayi), 21, who played in the final with Gonzaga and who was averaging 12 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 32 games. Olivier Sarr (22), meanwhile, decided to leave Wake Forest for Kentucky last season, and it went moderately, averaging 10.8 points and 5.2 rebounds in 25 games. Finally, Yves Pons (22) will also try his luck, after four years with the Tennessee Volunteers, and a last season with 8.7 points and 5.3 rebounds in 26 games.
