How many Jayhawks are playing in the NBA?
Now, we admit that things change pretty fast in the NBA. The list below may be accurate one day and inaccurate the next. By our count, there have been over 80 KU players in the NBA. And here is a list of those who are currently playing:
Frank Mason (KU 13-17) Sacramento Kings
11 Jayhawks have won NBA titles, but only 4 have won both an NBA title and an NCAA championship: Mario Chalmers, Brandon Rush, Sasha Kaun, and Clyde Lovellette. (Ok, Brandon Rush was a benchwarmer for the Golden State team that won in 2015, as was Sasha Kaun for Cleveland in 2016...) Clyde Lovellette was the first player in history to join the Triple Crown Club, winning NCAA and NBA titles, and an Olympic Gold.
