How does each season, this morning was held the ceremony of the NBA Draft. In this event, the 30 teams in the American League players are divided on the American League in university players or international between 19 and 23 years who have decided to join the process.

One of the players who was in the Draft this year is Barça's Shooting Guard Mario Hezonja. The Croatian, 20 years, has been chosen by the Orlando Magic in the 5th selection in the first round. This will mean a salary (approximate) a little more than $3 million, according to projections based on previous years. Thus, the player, if he wants, he can pay the clause of the rescision contract and join with Barça and go to the NBA. Currently his clause is of 2 million euros.

The 5th is the best position for a Barça player since 2001 Pau Gasol was chosen by Atlanta Hawks, 3rd. Finally, the Georgian team transferred the rights of Gasol to Memphis Grizzlies.
