  • Sixteen Players Yet to Announce NBA Decisions

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    The NCAA deadline for withdrawing from the NBA Draft and retaining college eligibility is 11:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

    Heading towards that deadline, 16 players have yet to announce their decisions, via our friend Brendan Quinn of MILive.com. Some 137 underclassmen initially declared for Early Entry into the NBA Draft on April 25.

    The list includes several high-profile names, including Kentucky’s Hamidou Diallo, North Carolina’s Tony Bradley and Purdue’s Caleb Swanigan. Diallo’s decision is expected to “go down to the wire” on Wednesday, as ZAGSBLOG reported, while Bradley has already made up his mind.

    (For my radio interview on Tuesday with Larry Glover regarding the latest on Diallo, listen here.)

    In the last few days, several key players have already withdrawn from the Draft, including Aaron Holiday and Thomas Welsh (UCLA), Jaylen Adams (St. Bonaventure), Rawle Alkins (Arizona),  Trevon Bluiett (Xavier), Jevon Carter (West Virginia), Angel Delgado (Seton Hall), Andrew Jones (Texas) and Corey Sanders (Rutgers).
