The upcoming NBA Draft promises a global infusion of talent, with France taking centre stage in many conversations. However, a recent tweet from John Hollinger, a prominent NBA analyst, suggests a broader perspective is needed.

John Hollinger ignited conversation on Twitter with the following statement:

“11 NBA rotation players plus Edey is a hell of a team to send to Paris. Might be deepest non-US international squad I’ve ever seen.”[@johnhollinger]

The tweet highlights the depth of international talent potentially exceeding any previous non-US national team. The inclusion of “Edey” likely refers to the highly touted Serbian prospect, Nikola Topic, known for his size and developing skillset. Hollinger’s statement suggests a hypothetical international squad built from current NBA draft rotation players combined with this influx of young talent could be a formidable force.

While France boasts a strong contingent of prospects like Alexandre Sarr, Zaccharie Risacher, and Tidjane Salaun, the 2024 NBA draft offers a diverse range of international talent. Here are some noteworthy players:
