NEW YORK — On Saturday, October 21st, the NBA G League held their 2017 draft via teleconference at their offices in New York.

Over 140 players made up the draft pool, with the hopes of being selected over the course of the four rounds. Each team had to make a minimum of three selections in the draft. After three selections, a team could choose to forego any selections after that.

If a team opted to forego a selection, they were unable to make any picks for the remainder of the event. The Northern Arizona Suns had three picks in the first round, and after they passed on their second round selection, their day was done.

In total, 96 players were selected in the 2017 draft. The players came from all across the NCAA, and a handful came from either JUCO, Canada, or other parts of the world.
