And-Ones: Early Entrants, FAs, M. Williams, Draft

NCAA early entrants who are testing the 2020 NBA draft waters will have less than three more weeks to decide whether or not to keep their names in the draft pool. According to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports (Twitter link), an NCAA official has clarified that the NCAA’s withdrawal deadline for early entrants will be August 3 at 5:00 pm ET.

The NCAA had previously announced that this year’s withdrawal deadline would be postponed until August 3 or 10 days after the NBA draft combine, whichever came later. With the status of this year’s combine still up in the air, August 3 is now the official withdrawal deadline.

Early entrants can still withdraw their names up until October 6, which is the NBA’s deadline. However, college players who do so after August 3 won’t be eligible to return to their NCAA teams.

    ESPN ranks Ibaka and Gallo too low

    They should rank higher than Bertans,Beasley ,Harris
    Defense needs to get pay

    • harden-westbrook-mvps

      The reason they’re ranked that low is their age. No one wants to give a big contract to players about to turn 31 or 32. Plus those other three guys have all proven to be excellent 3-point shooters, which is of course an extremely valuable skill to have these days.

      Gallinari can’t defend for his life & Marc Gasol still is a better defender & player even at his age, hence why they are so low, right?
