There have been 52 Hawkeye's drafted by NBA teams. Here is the list below with the number in the round they were drafted, (in 1982 and after the number is their TOTAL draft position regardless of round)name, school, team that drafted them, year, and round they went in. Obviously there are players that were drafted that may have never played in the NBA and there are players that were not drafted that have played like Dean Oliver more recently. So hopefully this is better than nothing to help answer your question.

Undrafted Reggie Evans started his first game as a rookie for the Supersonics and is currently still a starter.

I have replaced the erroneous listing of Art Beatty (who actually played for American U) in the 1968 draft with the correct listing of Sam Williams. The error apparently was caused from picking up an erroneous listing from another site. I have alerted that site & assume they will be making the correction shortly.

You are missing the name Matt Bullard a 1990 Iowa grad who played in the NBA for several years
