NBA Draft History: High School Draft Picks

 

For the present future, high school players will not be allowed to enter the NBA Draft. Since Moses Malone went pro back in 1974 (to the ABA), 50 players have ultimately entered the NBA Draft.  42 went drafted and 42 have played in the NBA (Ousmane Cisse was selected but has yet to play in an NBA game, while Charlie Villanueva was undrafted out of high school but returned to college and eventually to the NBA in 2005).

 

Here are the career stats of high school pros, as well as their 6 star CHN rating.  (For players in the last 2-3 drafts, the stars represent their future potential).
