NBA teams have been drafting European players and stashing them overseas for several years. But the term “Eurostash” has taken on a whole new meaning this season.
It’s the Americans who are being stashed across the pond, too. And one of them can actually be called an “Aussiestash.” There’s a new term for y’all.
This year’s draft featured five American players taken out of college who are currently hooping overseas while their rights are retained by NBA teams.
And that doesn’t count second-round picks Pierre Jackson (Pelicans, No. 42, Baylor) and Alex Oriakhi (Suns, No. 57, Missouri), who have been cut by their foreign teams.
