Five Canadians have been selected in the NBA draft in the past two years.

Three more could be added to that number on Thursday night in New York.

There’s even a chance that for only the third time in NBA draft history two Canadians could wind up going in the first round.

If Myck Kabongo edges into the first round it would mark the first time three Canadians had their names called in the first round.
