A Canadian revolution is suddenly taking place in the NBA draft lately.

Although the Cleveland Cavaliers were burned by reaching for Anthony Bennett last year, they went back to the well last week and selected a Canadian with the top overall pick for the second straight year, with their choice of Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins.

After Wiggins, Ontario natives Nik Stauskas (selected eighth, by the Sacramento Kings) and Tyler Ennis (taken 18th, by the Phoenix Suns) each went quickly in the draft.

Hoping to continue the trend of north-of-the-border talent getting drafted this year was the tallest player available in the 2014 draft, in Jordan Bachynski, hailing from Calgary.

However, unlike his fellow countrymen who were drafted over the past two years, Bachynski will have to go the post-draft route to land on an NBA roster.

Here’s a look at why some teams might want to add Bachynski to their summer league rosters (one team already has) or look into signing him as one of the more intriguing undrafted free agent prospects.
