POLL: Who is the Best Gonzaga Player in the NBA?

Updated:

One year ago, Kelly Olynyk was a little known Canadian basketball player coming off of a highly untraditional red-shirt junior year. For many Zag fans, he had faded into the back of their minds with the emergence of Sam Dower's left-handed hook shot and the arrival of Polish big man Przemek Karnowski. Now, he is a projected first round pick in the NBA Draft and will soon join a handful of Zag players who have played in the NBA.

Although Olynyk will certainly be drafted, where he ends up is unresolved. Mock drafts have him going as high as twelfth to the Oklahoma City Thunder and as low as twenty-first to the Utah Jazz. That is no surprise in this year's draft, as there even is still speculation over who will be the overall number one pick.

Only eight other Gonzaga basketball players have made it to the NBA. Clearly John Stockton has had the most storied career of a Gonzaga basketball player as he holds both the NBA assists and steals records. But beyond Stockton, who do you think is the best Gonzaga player to play in the NBA? Let us know!
