Palpreet has become only the second hoopster from India to walk into the world’s best basketball league. He made the NBA’s minor league – the D-League – when he was picked by Long Island Nets. He was the 12th pick in the fourth round and 76th overall D-League Draft pick. Last year, Satnam was selected by the 2011 champions Dallas Mavericks as the 52nd overall pick in the 2015 NBA draft, while Long Island picked Palpreet from the 2016 D-League draft. The D-League is NBA’s official minor league, played with 22 teams. India’s biggest basketball hope Satnam currently plays for the Mavericks’ D-League team Texas Legends.
