NBA Announces 93 Withdrawals From 2024 Draft Pool

A total of 93 players have notified the NBA that they wish to be removed from the list of early entrants eligible for the 2024 NBA draft, the league announced today (via Twitter).

The NCAA’s early entry withdrawal deadline passed on Wednesday night at 10:59 pm CT, meaning that players wishing to retain their college eligibility had to remove their names from the draft pool by that point. The NBA’s own withdrawal deadline is 4:00 pm CT on June 16, so more players will be taking their names out of consideration in the coming weeks.

The players who pull out of the draft between now and that June 16 deadline will primarily be international prospects and domestic players who didn’t compete in college. Players from NCAA programs can still withdraw between now and June 16, but they wouldn’t be eligible to return to college, so they’d likely only take that route if they planned to play professionally in a non-NBA league in 2024/25.

Currently, 108 early entrants remain in the draft pool after 201 initially declared. You can check out our updated early entrant list right here.

While most of the 93 withdrawal decisions confirmed today by the NBA were reported or announced leading up to Wednesday’s deadline, we’ve moved a few new names to the withdrawals section of our early entrants tracker. The following players have removed their names from the draft:

  • Roberts Blums, G, VEF Riga (born 2005)
  • Malik Bowman, F, Lusitania (born 2004)
  • Jaden Bradley, G, Arizona (sophomore)
  • Tyon Grant-Foster, G, Grand Canyon (senior)
