Default No International Players Expected in the First Round?

Is it just a lack of prospects? And why would there be such a drying up of talent?

Or have teams just been burnt too often by the likes of Rubio and Vazquez and Splitter not coming over? And then there was Yi being difficult.

Or have the overall results of higher international picks just been too mixed to warrant the risk? Yi could be pointed at as being a malefactor here as well.

Or is it a little of all of the above?

It doesn't seem that long ago that international players got all the buzz, with multiple picks in the lottery alone. Even number one.

Kevin Seraphin, Tibor Pleiss will go in the first
players like Vesely, Motiejunas (withdrew from 2010 draft), Valanciunas are all lottery picks for 2011

Nemanja Bjelica, Alexey Shved, Miroslav Raduljica, Paulao Prestes could sneak in late first or early 2nd
if they stay in Europe for a year or 2 you don't have to pay them so its a good option for teams near or over the tax

yeah - I can see a lot of players being taken in the second round. That's certainly a different dynamic from what we've seen through much of this decade though.
