Here is more from

Korean Basketball League's foreign player draft was held today in Las Vegas, Nevada. Virgin Islander Cuthbert Victor (197-F-83, college: Murray St.) was one of the twenty players drafted. Victor will suit up for defending champion Mobis Phoebus and is expected to join their team next month.

A total of 120 players attended the three day tryout with 115 available to be drafted. In the first of two rounds, eight of the 10 teams chose players with previous experience in the KBL and 9 of the 10 were big men, suggesting that the teams may have somewhat different priorities than the league itself.


Here's a look at the top 10 picks:

1. Samsung Thunder - Ratliffe Ricardo
2. SK Knights - Simon David
3. Incheon Elephants - Andre Smith
4. KGC Anyang - Rhodes Charles (203-F/C-85, college: Mississippi St.)
5. KCC Egis - Andre Emmett (196-F-82, college: Texas Tech)
6. Sonic Boom KT - Sims Courtney (211-C-83, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management, college: Michigan)
7. Goyang Orions - Haynes Aaron (201-F-81, college: Boise St.)
8. LG Sakers - Troy Gillenwater (205-F-88, college: N.Mexico St.)
9. Dongbu Promu - Rodrique Benson (207-F/C-84, college: California)
10. Mobis Phoebus - Leo Lyons (206-F-87, college: Missouri).
