A smarter path to the draft

Basketball players test NBA waters without sacrificing collegiate eligibility

Making More Informed Decisions

Rules and deadlines changed in 2016 for students exploring entering the NBA draft. The new rule allows players to withdraw from the draft as many as 10 days after the end of the NBA draft combine. Additionally, players may now declare for the draft twice – provided they withdraw before the new deadline without hiring an agent – and will be allowed to attend the draft combine and one tryout per year for each NBA team without losing college eligibility. Players are permitted to hire an advisor provided he or she does not directly market them to teams.
