Where did the 435 players on NBA rosters at the end of the 2008-09 season come from?
170 College seniors
82 College juniors
61 College sophomores
52 International
35 College freshmen
33 High school seniors
2 Junior college
From Rivals.com College basketball. It would seem that staying in school to perfect ones game is not time lost.

Thanks HillBilly. Interesting statistics

It would be more meaningful to me if we could relate either the average starting salary or the average current salary to each category. I have not given it any thought, but I suspect that the kids coming out of high school or who did only one year in college are making a boatload more money on average than kids who came to the league as seniors or juniors, since many of the younger kids are the super elite NBA players.

Anyway, a fun chart.
