4. Jordan Nwora
Jordan Nwora was a member of the Louisville Cardinals from 2017-2020. The Buffalo, New York native averaged 26.3 points over his tenure in Louisville, Kentucky and that propeled him into the 2020 NBA Draft in which he was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks with the 15th pick of the second round.
The former Louisville standout has spent his entire three year NBA career as a member of the Bucks organization with his second season being his most productive season scoring 487 points. That total more than doubled his total from his rookie season in which he scored only 171 points.
3. Damion Lee
Damion Lee came to the University of Louisville as a graduate transfer from Drexel University. He spent only one season as a Cardinal in 2015-2016 in which he averaged 34.0 points and totaled 59 assists.
Lee left the Cardinals to enter his name into the 2016 NBA Draft in which he went undrafted. However, his dreams of playing in the NBA did not end that night. On April 1, 2018, Lee was informed that he would play out the remainder of the 2017-2018 season with the Atlanta Hawks.
After his one season with the Hawks, the Baltimore, Maryland native spent four seasons as a member of the Golden State Warriors in which he won an NBA championship this past season. He is the first active Louisville player to have his name etched in NBA history as a member of a championship squad.
Following last season’s victory, he signed a one-year deal with the Phoenix Suns. Lee has already netted 130 points in Phoenix and looks to continue his dreams of being an NBA player throughout the season.
