  • Anthony Edwards
    SG, College

    Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle believes Anthony Edwards is the top target on the Warriors' draft board.

    Edwards is considered to be the top option for the majority of teams that could land the No. 1 selection in the 2020 NBA draft. The fit would be difficult with Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins on the roster already, likely placing the 6'4" Edwards on the bench, but the talent may be too much for the Warriors to pass on if they were to receive the top selection. The guard coming out of Georgia, has enough athleticism to be a big boost to the veteran core in Golden State, but they could also try to deal the selection if they want to make a win-now maneuver. They have a 14 percent chance to receive the first overall pick.

  • Isaac Okoro
    SF, College

    Isaac Okoro announced that he will stay in the 2020 NBA draft pool and will not return to Auburn next season.

    The two-way small forward is projected to be a top-10 selection on draft day, as he is coming off a solid freshman season with Auburn. Over 28 games he averaged 12.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2 assists per game. His inability to thrive from long range (.286) or the free-throw line (.674) are red flags as he enters the NBA, and those inefficiencies are bound to weigh him down as a rookie no matter where he lands.

  • Tyler Bey
    SG-SF, College

    University of Colorado junior forward Tyler Bey (6-foot-7, 218 pounds) has announced his plans to leave his name in the 2020 NBA draft. Bey played 99 career games at Colorado and averaged 13.8 PTS, 9.0 REB, 1.5 STL and 1.2 BLK during his final season in 2019-2020 (shortened due to the COVID-19 pandemic).

    Bey's stock definitely improved with his strong showing as a junior, but his potential role on an NBA roster has yet to be determined. His 3-point shooting improved immensely this past season, as he put up a 41.9 percentage from deep (Bey shot 30.5 percent for his career with the Buffaloes). Bey currently projects as a late first-round or, more than likely, a second-round selection.

  • Vernon Carey Jr.
    C, College

    Duke center Vernon Carey Jr. was amongst the list of 205 players that the NBA announced to be early draft entries.

    Carey was part of the early entry process that allows him to withdraw from draft consideration up to 10 days before the festivities. Carey is projected as a late first-round player at this time, and whether or not he returns to Duke is likely to come down to what kind of guarantees he receives from NBA squads. His freshman season with the Blue Devils was a productive one, with averages of 17.8 points on 57.7 field goal percentage, alongside 8.8 rebounds and 1.6 blocks. His game looks well suited for the pros as he already displayed decent range from deep last season.

  • Anthony Edwards
    SG, College

    The Warriors expect the NBA Draft Lottery will be delayed beyond its scheduled date of May 19th.

    A person in the know predicted that there is "basically zero chance" the Warriors play again this season. It makes sense for the NBA to delay the draft process without a plan for how to finish this season.

  • Daishen Nix
    PG, College

    Shams Charania of The Athletic is reporting that five-star prospect Daishen Nix, who had originally committed to play next season for the UCLA Bruins, has decommitted from the school in favor of signing a G League contract.

    Decisions like this one are becoming more and more common, as Nix becomes the third top prospect from next year's class to make the jump from the high school ranks to the G League. Other top prospects who will be doing the same include Isaiah Todd and Jalen Green, both five-star prospects as well. Nix is a very well-rounded point guard with great court vision and measures in at 6-foot-4 and 195 pounds. This is definitely a player to keep an eye on.

  • Jahmi'us Ramsey
    SG, College

    Jahmi'us Ramsey entered his name into the 2020 NBA draft on Sunday.

    The shooting guard out of Texas Tech is projected to be a first-round selection when draft day arrives. He has an intriguing stat profile at the college level, averaging 15 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2.2 3-pointers as a freshman last season. He'll need to work on his weak .640 free-throw shooting at the next level, but he already displayed a component deep ball, and he carries the necessary athleticism to be a multicategory contributor if he were to receive regular minutes.

  • Corey Kispert
    F, College

    Corey Kispert entered his name into the 2020 NBA draft, but his options remain open as he did not sign with an agent.

    Kispert will have the opportunity to return to Gonzaga for his senior season if he so chooses. Current projections have him landing towards the back half of the second round, but that could change based upon his predraft performances. Last year he averaged 13.8 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 2.4 3-pointers. He will not be fantasy relevant as a rookie.

  • Precious Achiuwa
    F, College

    After a successful freshman season with Memphis, AAC player of the year Precious Achiuwa has entered his name into the 2020 NBA draft.

    Achiuwa hired an agent is fully onboard for the 2020 draft. The forward showed enough offensive upside as the season progressed to make him a speculative lottery selection on draft day. He already has plenty of defensive abilities after averaging 10.8 rebounds, 1.9 blocks and 1.1 steals as a freshman, plus the 15.8 points are not too shabby either. He could be worth a late-round selection depending upon where he lands on draft day.

  • Elijah Hughes
    SF, College

    Syracuse redshirt junior forward Elijah Hughes (6-foot-6, 215 pounds) has decided to leave his name in the 2020 NBA draft. After one season at East Carolina and then a year sitting out as a transfer, Hughes averaged 16.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.4 dimes, 1.2 steals and 34.6 minutes per game in 66 career games with the Orange.

    While Hughes was named first-team All-ACC and his statistics look impressive at a glance, his shooting percentages in college leave much to be desired. He shot only 42.4 percent from the floor, 35.6 percent from deep and 78.8 percent from the line. Hughes is not a lock to be drafted in either round of the NBA draft in June. However, he maintains that he will not return to Syracuse even with one year of college eligibility remaining (barring Hughes hiring an agent). It sounds like Hughes has his sights set on pursuing professional opportunities.

  • Kira Lewis Jr.
    G, College

    University of Alabama sophomore point guard Kira Lewis Jr., an Alabama native who stands at 6-foot-3 and weighs 165 pounds, has decided to hire an agent on Tuesday, according to Shams Charania of the Athletic. Lewis Jr. had declared for the 2020 NBA draft last month.

    Lewis Jr. was one of the most effective transition players in the college ranks this past season, averaging 5.1 points per game in transition. He ranked fourth in the NCAA in that category. That bodes well for his NBA outlook and his stock has risen since his original declaration for the draft. Quality point guard depth is highly sought after in today's NBA and the league moves at a faster pace with each changing season. Lewis Jr. may not be on the board past the first round come June.

  • Jared Butler
    PG, College

    Baylor sophomore guard Jared Butler has announced his declaration for the 2020 NBA draft via his Twitter account on Monday.

    Butler is a 6-foot-3 point guard who has opted to retain his college eligibility. So, if he doesn't receive encouraging interest from NBA teams during the pre-draft scouting process, he can still return to Baylor as a junior. One of the highlights of his college career was a 31-point explosion (career-high) vs Kansas in 2018-19, the highest point total recorded by any visiting player that season.

  • Isaiah Todd
    F, College

    After decommitting from Michigan, Isaiah Todd announced that he would join the NBA/G League's new professional pathway program.

    Todd is expected to receive the $500,000 salary that Jalen Green will also be receiving next season. This is another indicator that we are witnessing the initial stages of the G League's rise to prominence as a legitimate option for NBA prospects that are not interested in the traditional college basketball route. While Green will undoubtedly find himself in a great place for the NBA no matter where he plays basketball for a year, it will be interesting to see how this year turns out for Todd, a promising prospect who is not a can't miss option like Green is projected to be.

  • Cole Anthony
    G, College

    North Carolina freshman guard Cole Anthony has declared for the 2020 NBA draft.

    Anthony is expected to be a lottery pick after averaging 18.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 4 assists as a Tar Heel this season. He had to deal with a partially torn meniscus that cost him 11 games midway through the campaign, and the team struggled even when Anthony returned later in the season. Nonetheless, his talent was evident throughout the season, and he could be worth a late-round flyer depending upon which team he lands on in the NBA. The major concern would be the .380 field goal percentage he registered last year.

  • Ayo Dosunmu
    PG, College

    Ayo Dosunmu declared for the 2020 NBA Draft on Wednesday.

    The sophomore point guard has decided to declare for the NBA Draft after being named to the First Team All-Big Ten this season. Dosunmu averaged 16.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game for Illinois this past season, building upon his rookie season where he was named to the Big Ten's All-Freshman team. Dosunmu has had an impressive college career but could fall to the second round in the NBA Draft. He's not a player to consider drafting in dynasty leagues, but he has done enough in college to keep an eye on him if he gets on an NBA roster.
