The deadline for underclassmen to enter the 2021 NBA Draft will pass at 11:59 p.m. ET on Sunday. This marks the final obstacle of the draft process before the combine and lottery in late-June. From there, players will have until July 7 to withdraw if they wish to return to college. The NBA’s deadline to withdraw and be eligible for a future draft is July 19 at 11:59 p.m.
But before a player can withdraw, they have to enter and there aren’t many looming dominoes left to fall. Every lottery prospect on the CBS Sports Top 75 big board has declared and more than 100 players in recent months have joined the fold. Kentucky big man Isaiah Jackson formally entering the draft and signing with an agent on Friday took away a potential suspense.
