There is no shortage of Canadian talent in the National Basketball Association this year, as 12 natives of Canada are currently on an NBA roster.
Two of the 12 - Chris Boucher and Naz Mitrou-Long - are on two-way contracts, meaning they will spend the majority of the 2018-19 season with the G League affiliate of their respective NBA teams.
Boucher and Mitrou-Long are not the only two Canadians that will develop their games in the NBA G League this year, either. In total, there are currently seven Canadian players on G League rosters.

By the Numbers
As three of the seven Canadian G Leaguers are members of the Raptors 905, five of the 28 NBA G League teams feature at least one Canadian on its roster.
Anthony Bennett (No. 1 overall pick, 2013) and Justin Jackson (No. 43 overall pick, 2018) were both selected in the NBA Draft while the other five players have earned contracts after going undrafted.
Bennett (151 games), Boucher (two games) and Mitrou-Long (two games) are the only three of the seven that have made an appearance in an NBA game.
While the Orlando Magic hold Justin Jackson's rights, he is under contract with the Lakeland Magic and will not be eligible to join Orlando until the 2019-20 NBA season. Excluding Boucher and Mitrou-Long, who can spend a maximum of 45 days with the Toronto Raptors and Utah Jazz, respectively, the other four players are eligible for an NBA call-up at any point in the 2018-19 season.
