World Team alumni have gone No. 1 in the NBA Draft for the past four years, including Ben Simmons in 2016. The most recent USA No. 1 selection was eventual Olympic and World Cup gold medalist Anthony Davis in 2012.  Since the first Nike Hoop Summit in 1995, 10 Hoop Summit alumni have been chosen No. 1 in the NBA Draft, including the past seven No. 1 picks. All told, 65 players have been selected among the first 10 draftees.

The first three draft picks were former Nike Hoop Summit players in 2016 (Simmons, Brandon Ingram and Jaylen Brown), in 2012 (Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Bradley Beal) and in 2008 (Derrick Rose, Michael Beasley and O.J. Mayo).

Six players who starred in a Nike Hoop Summit have gone on to earn NBA Rookie of the Year, including Karl-Anthony Towns (2016), Andrew Wiggins (2015), Kyrie Irving (2012), Tyreke Evans (2010), Rose (2009), Kevin Durant (2008) and Elton Brand, who shared the honor in 2000.
