NBA early entrants: The madness is just beginning

March Madness may be over, but for NBA Draft nuts, no time is more maddening than the present. Many underclassmen have already decided whether they will return to school or say goodbye to college to pursue their NBA dreams.

Duke’s Jabari Parker? He finally came around. One-man hype machine Andrew Wiggins? He’s in. So, too, is Kansas teammate and fellow potential No. 1 pick Joel Embiid. Neither Michigan nor Michigan State was immune from the lure of the NBA, each losing key cogs to early entry. Entering this season, Marcus Smart looked like the class of the point guard field. He’s headed to the NBA, but so are Dante Exum and Tyler Ennis, making PG perhaps the deepest position in the field.

Here are the key dates as we approach the draft:

May 20: NBA Draft lottery

June 16: Deadline for early entrants to withdraw from draft (5 p.m. ET)

June 26: NBA Draft

Here is the official list of players who are heading to the NBA Draft:
