NBA Draft, Was 2022 Canada’s Year?

Three of the most positively surprising rookies this season are Canadians: Benedict Mathurin, Shaden Sharp And Andrew Nembhardt. Apart from them, Caleb Houston was called up with 32, who averages 18 with the Magic and shows great qualities.

Benedict Mathurin

The sixth overall pick in the last NBA draft did not disappoint expectations: 17ppg, almost always coming off the bench. The percentages from the field, especially from three points, are still “immature”, but the offensive potential of this player appears to be huge.

Shaden Sharp

Drafted with the seventh overall pick by the Blazers, he averages nearly 20 minutes a game and already has many admirers from Damian Lillard in the league.
Described as “special” for Devin Booker, he said he has been impressed with the qualities he has shown so far.

Andrew Nembhardt

The thirty-first pick has the potential to prove to be one of the most promising players of this draft. Averaged 26 minutes with the Pacers and started permanently in the starting lineup. Overall player with 8.6 points, 3 rebounds and 3.0 assists
race Not bad for a newbie.

Recent years have shown that Canada has become one of the most promising countries on the international basketball scene and for the next tournaments, if all the stars (RJ Barrett And Shai Gilgeous-Alexander After all) will confirm their presence, they will definitely be among the favorites.
