The 2012 NBA draft is nearing a conclusion with the last few picks coming off the board. While not all of these players will make NBA rosters or even come over from Europe, hearing their name called is still a thrill of a lifetime.
With the No. 56 pick in the draft, the Toronto Raptors selected Tomislav Zubcic a forward from Croatia. Zubcic last played for Cibona Zagreb.
The Brooklyn Nets also went international with the No. 57 pick, selecting Ilkan Karaman from Turkey. Karaman is a 22-year-old 6'10" power forward.
The Minnesota Timberwolves broke the string of international players when they selected Robbie Hummel from Purdue. Hummel, a power forward, battled numerous injuries throughout his collegiate career.
With the No. 59 pick of the 2012 draft, the San Antonio Spurs selected Marcus Denmon from the university of Missouri. Denmon averaged 17.7 points per game last season for the Tigers.
