Michigan State’s Denzel Valentine, the national and Big Ten players of the year, was the first Big Ten name off the board, going No. 14 to the Chicago Bulls. Michigan’s Caris LeVert, the conference’s only other first-round selection, went No. 20 to Indiana but was traded to Brooklyn.

Several former Big Ten standouts went undrafted, though, and they began signing free-agent contracts immediately after the draft.

Here’s the updated list.

Yogi Ferrell (Indiana), Brooklyn
