International players are some of the most intriguing players in each year's draft. Regardless of how they play in their respective leagues, there is no such thing as a sure thing.
With the recent success of Dirk Nowitzki, many teams may be looking for the next versatile, shooting big man. While he may not come in this year's draft, there are plenty of talented foreign players.
In this mock draft, I have seven international players (that did not play in college, excluding Enes Kanter) being selected in the first round. I think each of them will fit well with his respective team, but their contribution will depend a lot on their work ethic in the coming years.
