Default Native American NBA player?

Has there ever been an Native American NBA player? I think I've heard about some players having some Native blood (I think Boozer, Kidd and some others?), but has there ever been a Native American NBA player?


Also I'm still waiting for the first Inu´t NBA player.

Najera is Mexican, which means he probably does have some Native blood.

Chances are that their homeland will have melted away and they will all have relocated in Florida by the time that happens.

True. I am pretty sure he could have played NBA level considering his natural abilities.

the thing about Jim Thorpe is his basketball career isn't well documented, and it seems it lasted only two years. In fact, until 2005 his biographers were unaware he had a basketball career. Still, I'm sure had he been able to play in the NBA, he would've.

there's a pretty big diference between native americans and native center americans (or indigenas, as they are called).
