Two Nigerians, Victor Oladipo & Giannis Adetokunbo have been drafted into the NBA this morning during the annual NBA draft event.
Victor Oladipo was taken in at Number 2 by the Orlando Magic while Adetokunbo was the 15th pick, selected by the Milwaukee Bucks.
Both will hope to have successful NBA careers like Hakeem “The Dream” Olajuwon, who was the 1st pick of the ’84 draft.
21-year old Oladipo previously played for the basketball team at Indiana University, while 18-year old small forward Adetokunbo was selected out of Greece.
Whether both players will play for the Nigerian national basketball team is yet not known.
