List of NBA players born outside the United States

Encyclopedia from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the National Basketball Association, players born outside of the United States are often known as international players. Players who were born in U.S. overseas territories, such as Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, are considered international players even if they are U.S. citizens.[1][2][3][4] In some borderline cases, the NBA takes into consideration whether a player desires to be identified as international.[1]

Hank Biasatti, who was born in Italy and raised in Canada, was the first international player in the league in 1946.[5] The number of international players in the league rose after the formation of the Dream Team when NBA players were allowed into Olympic play starting in 1992. Global interest in basketball subsequently soared. On opening day of the 1991–92 season, NBA rosters included 23 international players from 18 countries.[6] At the start of the 2016–17 season, there was a record-high 113 international players from 41 countries and territories.[7] In the start of the 2017–18 season, there were 108 international players from a record-high 42 countries and territories, including five players signed up through the newly implemented two-way contract.[8]

The number of players on opening-night rosters broke an all-time league record first set in 2010–11 and tied in 2012–13,[9] and the number of countries represented surpassed the record set in 2010–11.[10] In addition, the San Antonio Spurs set an all-time record for international players on an opening-night squad, with 10 during the 2013-14 season.[10]

This list includes all international players who have played in the NBA and also includes all players who were born in the United States but have represented other countries in international basketball competition. Players listed under the United States were born outside of the country but have represented them in international basketball tournament. Players who were born outside the United States to U.S. parents and players who became naturalized U.S. citizens are also included in that section.

As of the 2020–21 season, among foreign players, excluding those born in the United States: Canada has produced the most players, with 55. From European countries, France have produced 37 players. From Oceania countries, Australia has produced 25 players while New Zealand has produced 3 players. From African countries, Nigeria and Senegal have produced 24 and 12 players respectively. From Latin American countries, Brazil, Puerto Rico, and Argentina have produced 17, 15 and 14 players respectively. From Asian countries, China, Japan, and Lebanon have produced 6, 5 and 4 players respectively. Among transcontinental countries, Russia, Turkey, and Georgia have produced 13, 12 and 10 players respectively.

In total, 83 players have come from the former Yugoslavia (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, and Slovenia) and 54 players have come from the former Soviet Union (Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, and Ukraine).
