Undrafted Gems

gems Undrafted Gems - The Draft ReviewThis page was set up to honor players who were notably absent on draft night. Many of these players went on to achieve solid careers in the NBA. To make this list truly exceptional certain guidelines were put into place in order to achieve the high standards that we feel truly honors these players. If this was open to any and all players who ever made an NBA roster then we feel it would take off much of the prestige. These players are truly the cream of crop among all of the undrafted free agents to ever play in the NBA.

Guidelines

  • Players must play a minimum of 250 career games.
  • Players must have played a minimum of 5 NBA seasons.
