NEW YORK (AP) Ben Simmons went from Down Under to the top of the NBA draft, and a record number of international players followed.

The Philadelphia 76ers took the Australian with the No. 1 pick on Thursday night, making him the first of a record 14 international players chosen in the first round.

Nearly half the selections in the 30-pick round were international players, topping the 12 international players chosen in the first round in 2013.
