As the offseason formally commences in college basketball, the list of players entering the NBA Draft process has steadily stacked up in recent weeks. And with the deadline to declare for underclassmen set for May 31, we’re expecting the list to grow exponentially over the next month.
Some of those who have already declared have done so with a ten-toes-in approach by declaring and announcing intentions to sign with an agent. They include Cade Cunningham, Keon Johnson and Ayo Dosunmu. Others have done so to test the waters with the intent to keep their option of returning to college open. Among that group is JT Thor, Miles McBride and a handful of others as they seek opinions from NBA decision-makers on their draft stock.
The list who have declared already exceeds several dozen. As players continue to enter their name into the draft ring, we’ll continue updating this tracker below with our current projections attached. Please note that a player entering the draft does not preclude them from returning to college, nor does signing with an agent in many cases so long as the agent is NCAA-certified.
