NBA Draft prospects 2020: Tracking the early-entry list of top players who have declared

Sporting News — (Jordan Greer)

The early-entry deadline for the 2020 NBA Draft is fast approaching with the window open until April 26 at 11:59 p.m. ET. 

Potential lottery picks like Georgia's Anthony Edwards and Iowa State's Tyrese Haliburton have already made their intentions known, but plenty of other college stars are still on the fence. This draft class isn't particularly strong or deep, so it will be a challenge for teams to find contributors for their rotations.

NBA MOCK DRAFT: Warriors face tough decision with top pick

There is a bigger issue than the talent level of this group, of course. With the coronavirus pandemic shutting down all NBA operations indefinitely, there is no guarantee the 2020 NBA Draft will be held June 25 as originally scheduled. Front offices will still have to prepare for draft night, though, even if the ability to evaluate and interview players is more difficult than usual.

Which prospects will enter their names into the draft pool? Here are the underclassmen who have declared so far.

(Note: The deadline to withdraw is June 15 at 5 p.m. ET.)
