The chances are very slim, indeed. One has to have exceptional skills, a very professional work ethic, the right agent, and a lot of luck. There are numerous college and high school players that were highly drafted and never made it in the NBA and end up playing overseas or in developmental leagues. Plus, NBA teams can only carry so many players, so the chances to even make it to the NBA are severely limited.
