Big 12 Alumni on NBA Rosters – All 45 (plus 3) Listed

As shortened NBA training camps are in full swing, we thought it'd be a good time to rehash where former Big 12 hoopsters are playing.

In total 45 46 (plus 3) ex-Big 12ers are on NBA rosters and it should be of no surprise that the Kansas Jayhawks and Texas Longhorns share the honor of most alumns on NBA rosters with 12 each. It's also exciting for fans of all schools to know that they have at least one of their own to root for in the professional circuit, as all 10 conference schools have a representative playing in the Association.

And if you're going to watch an NBA game, you might want to check out any of the four the Memphis Grizzlies-Oklahoma City Thunder games, where you'll have a chance to see a total of nine conference alumni, 5 on the Grizz and 4 on the Thunder

After The Jump all 45 are paired off in two grids, one sorted by school and the other by NBA team. Here's hoping all 45 46 make final NBA rosters!

[Ed. Note: Thanks to "Justin the Aggie" who noted that DeAndre Jordan was left off the list. For some reason he isn't in CBS or ESPN's database, maybe because he isn't officially signed yet. Either way, added now as a Clipper. Let me know if anyone else was omitted]

I also would be remised not to mention for Colorado Buffaloes Alec Burks of the Utah Jazz and Chauncey Billups of the Los Angeles Clippers and former Nebraska Cornhusker Mikki Moore, suiting up as the 6th former Big12er on the Memphis Grizzlies, who played in the conference before their schools split.
