All NBA Draft picks: Procida named with 36, Spanish at 50

Having said Paolo Banchero to the Orlando Magic, there are 2 other Italians who were chosen at the NBA Draft: Gabriele Procida and Matteo Spagnolo. The former was almost called in the first round because he went sixth in the second, while the Real Madrid-owned player was selected with 50 by the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The boy from Cantur was initially selected by the Portland Trail Blazers, but he will basically play for the Detroit Pistons because that pick had already been “sold” to the Motor City team in the trade that brought Jerian Grant to Oregon. This can be good and bad for Procida.: good because, the way Detroit is set up, they might even decide to put him in the 15, bad because today’s Pistons are probably the worst team to happen upon. There would, however, be a similarity to another Italian, Gigi Datome, who began his career in Detroit before transferring and doing fairly well in Boston.

For former Vanoli Cremona player Matteo Spagnolo, there is honestly little chance of staying on Minnie’s roster. He will most likely do at least one more year between EuroCup and EuroLega so he can grow physically and prove his full value in Europe before landing in the NBA.
