They just said they're hearing, "Three GLeaguers in the first round"... could it be? Or could/would it not be considered a draft, but a signing?
G League players aren’t drafted, so I imagine they are involved in a trade (since the affiliated NBA team has first dibs on signing anyone).

They may also be talking about G League Ignite players, who are eligible to be drafted (and one just was).

The last guy (Australian) is/was a g-leaguer.

I just checked, he’s on G League Ignite. That’s the G League team designed as an alternative to playing college basketball and those are the only G League players eligible to be drafted since it isn’t affiliated with a NBA team.
Gotcha, well, the commentators just said they heard 3 of them are in the first round. And this french player the NKnicks chose (apparently just to trade to OKC?), Spike Lee looked depressed and said he's never heard anything about him.

Former John Marshall High star Isaiah Todd was drafted about 32nd overall last year following a season with the Ignite.

G-League players who went into that league straight out of HS with no college are eligible for the draft.
