Looking at the CBA Draft

No, the NBA hasn't gotten their stuff together and decided to re-draft the Collective Bargaining Agreement to help teams out and let them allocate injured players on assignment or take away the rule about league tenure to determine if a player can be assigned.  We're talking the FIVE team Continental Basketball Association. 

Looking over at my favorite forum, OurSportsCentral, I saw some people looking for what this years CBA draft picks are doing. Knowing that each team only picked 30 players, figured this was a task I could handle. Knowing the majority of the players will wind up in either the D-League or overseas as they did last year, I'm assuming the majority of the nothing yet's will probably hear their name November 7th when the D-League drafts.

I think I'd say East Kentucky had the best draft, as 4 of their 6 choices haven't been signed, but they're all pretty good players, so I'm assuming they'll go D-League. Albany probably had the worst draft, as they only have 2 players not signed overseas, and one is Steve Dagastino out of St. Rose College (WHAT!?) in New York.

Anyway, continue on to see what I found out:
