2012 NBA Draft: International Players List Includes Evan Fournier, Alen Omic

Every year in the NBA, college stars of the previous year or more hope to make the successful transition to the pro level as players jostle for position in the NBA Draft. Yet every year, a group of mystery players from overseas and nearly every continent make their way to the States to also try for basketball glory, and names like Jan Vesely suddenly lower the draft stock of proven college players like Kemba Walker a bit lower. It happens every year and this year's class of International Players will expect to do the same.

The 2012 NBA is coming next month on June 28, and the complete list of international stars has been released. These are the players hoping to make the jump along with the seniors who graduated and the early entrant list:
