Draft Notes: Harley, Brown, Payne

French swingman Kévin Harley is entering this year’s draft, agent Olivier Mazet announced via Twitter (hat tip to Sportando’s Emiliano Carchia). The 20-year-old is the 17th-best overseas prospect born in 1994, according to Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress, but he’s otherwise unranked by either Givony or Ford. That suggests there’s a strong chance that Harley will withdraw by June 15th, the deadline for international prospects to do so, though that’s just my speculation.

Here’s more new regarding the 2015 NBA draft:

  •  Stanford senior guard Anthony Brown has hired agent Sam Goldfeder of Excel Sports Management, Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com tweets. DraftExpress.com ranks Brown as the No. 41 overall prospect and ESPN.com (Insider subscription required) places him 61st.
  • Murray State sophomore Cameron Payne has hired Travis King of Relativity Sports as his agent, Goodman reports (Twitter link). Payne is the No. 22 ranked prospect by both Ford and Givony.
  • In a separate article Ford (Insider subscription required) ran down the 10 best international prospects in this year’s draft, including Emmanuel Mudiay, Kristaps Porzingis, and Zhou Qi.
