2019 NBA Draft Early Entrants List

The NCAA rule changes related to early entrants for the NBA draft, initially instituted in 2016, remain in effect this year. Those rule changes will allow underclassmen to “test the waters” before officially committing to the 2019 NBA draft.

However, those rules come with a new twist this time around — for the first time, NCAA underclassmen will be permitted to formally hire representation without forgoing their remaining college eligibility. As the NCAA explains in a memo, relayed by ESPN’s Jonathan Givony, there are a handful of rules that players must follow throughout the process to maintain their eligibility, but it’s still the first time that prospects will be permitted to be represented by an agent without losing that eligibility.

NCAA underclassmen have until the end of the day on April 21 to declare for the draft, and can withdraw at any time up until May 29 while maintaining their college eligibility. That means that prospects testing the waters can take part in the NBA draft combine from May 14-19 – if invited – and can work out for individual teams starting later this month. Meanwhile, the NBA’s only withdrawal deadline is on June 10 at 4:00pm CT, so international early entrants will have until then to decide whether or not to remain in the draft.

A year ago, the NBA’s initial list of early entrants included a record 236 names, but many of those players eventually withdrew from consideration prior to the May and June deadlines. This year, the final draft list will be set after the early entrant withdrawal deadline for international and other non-NCAA players passes on June 10.

In the meantime, we’ll use this post to keep track of reports and announcements on early entrant prospects and their decisions. We’ll archive them all in a running list here, which will be accessible anytime under “Hoops Rumors Features” on the right sidebar of our desktop site, or in the “Features” page found in our mobile menu.

The players below are listed in alphabetical order. If you have any corrections or omissions, please contact us.

      Right now, even as this list stands at 26, I’d take that bet that 3 make it…Although, it is a close call…Garland is a lottery pick and 100%, and then you have a couple interesting guys…As it stands now, I wonder if you set the over under at 3 what the majority would take…??

      What do you guys think, over or under 3 guys making an NBA roster, from the current list of 26??

        • x%sure

          Def over! Missed Coby White for one. Then there’s the Vandy guy whose name cannot be written without the post being held up for being a wirty dord. IDK how good he is though.
