The Iowa Energy will select first of the league’s 17 teams in the eight-round draft while the Rio Grande Valley Vipers will select second, a pick the team secured by way of a trade with the Reno Bighorns. The Springfield Armor, Idaho Stampede and Texas Legends round out the top five selecting teams.

The first eight picks in the 2013 NBA D-League Draft were awarded to teams who did not qualify for the 2013 NBA D-League playoffs, in reverse order of their regular season records. The Delaware 87ers, making their NBA D-League debut for the 2013-14 season, will select ninth. The subsequent eight picks in the Draft will go to those teams who did qualify for the 2013 NBA D-League playoffs, also in reverse order of regular season record. This format will stand for all eight rounds, except in instances where teams previously acquired or traded picks.

“More than 200 top young prospects will look to use the NBA D-League Draft as a springboard to their NBA dreams,” said Chris Alpert, Vice President of Basketball Operations and Player Personnel for the NBA D-League. “With a number of players coming directly from NBA training camps, we’ve been impressed with the level of talent in this draft pool and look forward to welcoming these athletes to the NBA D-League.”

Seven players chosen in the 2012 NBA D-League Draft had NBA experience at the time of their selection, while an additional ten such members of the last three draft classes had also logged minutes in the NBA. More than 25 total prospects picked in the four NBA D-League Drafts went on to earn GATORADE Call-Ups, including Andrew Goudelock, Shelvin Mack, Chris Johnson, Travis Leslie, and Tim Ohlbrecht, all 2012 first-round picks.

No trades will be permitted during the draft and only players signed to an NBA Development League Standard Player Contract are eligible to be selected. The first six rounds of the Draft are mandatory, while teams may opt not to select players in the seventh and eighth rounds. All selected players are required to report to their NBA D-League training camp, which begin no earlier than Nov. 7.
