Alabama’s basketball program is enjoying a surge of success. Just last year, the team put together the programs best season since 2004, bringing to Tuscaloosa both an SEC regular season title and the SEC Tournament title.

In the postseason, the Crimson Tide advanced to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament.

Over the past few years, Nate Oats has had his hands on some top-tier talent. Even former head coach Avery Johnson found himself with a stud on the court in Collin Sexton.

This top-tier talent made its way to the NBA after their time at Alabama, and the following list will cover every Tide basketball player repping the crimson and white in the NBA.
