The 2020 NBA Draft class is expected to be loaded at point guard, and French prospect Killian Hayes, the No. 2 prospect at the position on the CBS Sports Big Board, just made it more saturated. Hayes told ESPN on Friday that he’s officially filed paperwork with the NBA front office to make himself available for the draft.
Hayes, a 6-foot-5 French prospect, who played most recently in Germany, is the No. 3 overall prospect in our rankings. He played last season for Ratiopharm Ulm, averaging 12.8 points and 6.2 assists per game.
Hayes joins a star-studded list of names who have already made themselves available for the draft, such as Iowa State’s Tyrese Haliburton, Duke’s Tre Jones, Georgia’s Anthony Edwards, Auburn’s Isaac Okoro and Alabama’s Kira Lewis Jr., all of whom are projected first-rounders.
As commitments to enter the draft continue to roll in in the coming days and weeks, we’ll monitor each with our continuously updating tracker below along with each player’s updated projections. Remember, these are all subject to change due to new NCAA legislation that allows players to test the draft process and either stay in the draft or return to college dependent upon feedback they receive. The deadline for underclassmen to withdraw their name from the draft is June 15 at 5 p.m. ET.
