Official list of NBA draft underclassmen released

A few things to know about the NBA draft, now that the league has released its official list of declared underclassmen (entire list below):

1. Prospects are not allowed to miss class to work out for pro teams. So while some college seniors might start touring NBA cities for individual workouts this week, the majority of potential lottery picks won’t be making rounds until school is out.

2. The good news is NBA scouts and general managers can now have direct contact with underclassmen — something they weren’t permitted to do before the league released the declared list late last week.

3. A lot of NBA folks are currently in Kentucky to watch coach John Calipari’s pre-draft combine of four Wildcats — freshman guard Brandon Knight, freshman forward Terrance Jones, junior swingman DeAndre Liggins and senior big man Josh Harrellson. Knight and Jones are expected lottery picks. The workouts will be conducted and observed by NBA personnel. You can expect other college coaches to copy Calipari’s bright idea. If not this spring, then certainly next year.

4. New Jersey, Houston and New York will conduct a workout of some of the top prospects this weekend at the Nets’ practice facility. All NBA teams are expected to be represented.

5. Underclassmen have until Saturday to decide whether or not to remain in the draft. Top prospect Kyrie Irving of Duke (a freshman) has already signed with an agent.

6. The NBA-sponsored draft combine will be held May 18-21 in Chicago. Prospects will be available to speak with the media about their workouts during the camp’s first two days.
