Patrick Williams, a 6-foot-8, 225-pound small forward out of Florida State, has declared for the 2020 NBA draft after a shortened freshman season off the bench, averaging 9.2 PTS, 4.0 REB and 1.0 AST while not starting a single game for a deep Seminoles squad.
The intriguing aspect of Williams' draft aspirations lies in his dimensions; particularly his 7-foot wingspan. He had modest numbers but that can largely be attributed to how deep their rotation was in 2019-20, similar to fellow 'Nole Devin Vassell, who also declared for the draft recently. Williams has incredible athleticism and has made himself into an intriguing prospect who could find himself landing in the first round if his draft stock maintains momentum.

March 25, 2020, 11:12 pmMalik FittsSF, College
Malik Fitts announced on Twitter that he is declaring for the 2020 NBA Draft.
Fitts was the second leading scorer for a Saint Marys' team that was top-10 in offensive efficiency. He averaged 16.5 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.4 steals while shooting .472 from the field and .408 from beyond the arc. Fitts is an under-the-radar draft prospect who will likely be a second-round pick at best. He is likely to have a limited role if he makes an NBA roster next season, but his 3-point efficiency and steals are two fantasy skills that translate well from college to the pros. He could be a threes and steals specialist if he gets minutes in the upper-20s.

Kenyon Martin Jr., forward from IMG Academy, has declared for the 2020 NBA Draft.
You guessed it, Kenyon Martin Jr. is the son of 2000 NBA Draft first pick Kenyon Martin Sr. He is eligible for draft after a year at IMG since he graduated from Sierra Canyon High School a year ago. Martin had committed to Vanderbilt last May before heading to IMG Academy. This year's draft order looks to be more unpredictable than most, so based on Martin's athleticism and pedigree, he has a shot to make some noise on draft night.

Alabama guard Kira Lewis Jr. has declared for the 2020 NBA draft after finishing his sophomore season averaging 18.5 PTS, 5.2 AST, 4.8 REB and 1.8 STL per game.
While teammate John Petty Jr. got most of the national spotlight generated from this Crimson Tide squad, it was Lewis Jr. who led the team in scoring in 2019-20. He measures in at 6-foot-3 and only 165 pounds and will assuredly be a point guard when he enters the league. Lewis Jr. could find himself sneaking into the first round in June if he performs well in workouts leading up to the draft.

March 24, 2020, 9:00 pmDevin VassellG, College
On Monday morning, Florida State sophomore guard Devin Vassell tweeted that he would be entering his name into the 2020 NBA draft.
He posted averages of 12.7 PTS, 5.1 REB, 1.6 AST, 1.4 STL and 1.0 BLK this season. Vassell is a well-rounded player and while his averages are not eye-popping, he actually led FSU in scoring this season due to the team's depth. He is very good on the defensive end and he shot the ball quite well in college, finishing his career at .475 FG, .417 3PT and .720 FT. Current projections have Vassell landing somewhere near the middle of the the first round of June's draft. His declaration became increasingly likely as the calendar flipped to 2020 and he kept up his consistent production.

March 24, 2020, 8:41 pmTyrese HaliburtonG, College
Sophomore guard Tyrese Haliburton, who is widely expected to be a lottery selection, has declared for the 2020 NBA draft after averaging 15.2 points, 5.9 rebounds and 6.5 assists in 36.7 minutes per game this season at Iowa State.
Haliburton's season was cut short(-er than everyone else's) in February when he injured his wrist, but his career as a Cyclone was nonetheless very impressive. He is a highly-skilled defensive player and is equally good on the offensive end as a distributor and scorer. Haliburton accumulated excellent shooting averages this season prior to going down with the injury: .504 FG, .419 3PT and .822 FT. His draft stock is on the rise.
