Satnam Singh Bhamara


Meet Satnam Singh Bhamara, the first Indian born player to be drafted into the NBA.

Towering at a height of 7’2” he comes from a small village Baloke in Punjab. At the age of 10, Singh was enrolled into the Ludhiana Basketball Academy where Singh was taught some of his first basketball skills and drills by former Punjab basketball coach and Sports Authority of India director Dr. Sankaran Subramanian. Singh led the Punjab state youth team to a national championship in June 2010, leading the Basketball Federation of India to choose him to play at an NBA Basketball in Singapore. The BFI's head coach, Harish Sharma recommended Singh for IMG Reliance to consider him for a scholarship, but at the age of 14 he was too old. Nevertheless, Singh was later awarded a scholarship under the IMGR basketball training academy and shifted to Bradenton, Florida in September 2010. On June 25th 2015, Satnam Singh was the 52nd pick for the Dallas Mavericks that kickstarted his career in the NBA. He rejoined the Indian National team for the 2017 FIBA Asia Championship. 

We truly hope Satnam Singh’s inspiring journey to international fame and success creates a pathway for the upcoming generation in Basketball.
