2022 NBA Draft Dyson Daniels Australian selected by New Orleans Pelicans at No. 8
Bendigo native Dyson Daniels has become Australia's latest NBA sensation after being selected eighth overall in the 2022 draft.
The 202cm guard saw his stock fly through the roof during the pre-draft process and his tantalising potential proved too hard for the New Orleans Pelicans to pass up.
Having been drafted inside the top 10 selections, Daniels stands to earn in excess of $6 million in his first season and will sign a guaranteed two-year deal with the Pelicans, with the team holding options for a third and fourth year.
