Before Luka Doncic showed his unique talents in the start of the 2018-2019 NBA season, Americans did not trust the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague competition and especially European basketball. That is also one of the reasons, why two teams passed on him in last year’s draft. Within the last couple of years, however, European talent is making a statement in the world’s best basketball competition, with players such as Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nikola Jokic, Kristaps Porzingis, and Luka Doncic.

For another season, there are many European prospects for the 2019 NBA Draft, under the age of 22, playing in Europe’s best competitions (EuroLeague / 7DaysEuroCup / Basketball Champions League) and Eurohoops presents the eight best.
