New Orleans Hornets
Olympic history: First appearance

The eighth overall pick in the 2010 draft, Aminu appeared in 66 games for New Orleans, averaging 6.0 points in 22.4 minutes per game. Al-Farouq, whose brother Alade is also on the Nigerian team, finished with 14 points, seven rebounds and five blocks in the Olympic-clinching game.
