2020 NBA Draft prospects tracker: Nico Mannion, Jalen Smith, Jordan Nwora make declarations
A look at the entire list of underclassmen and international players who declared for the NBA Draft
The 2020 NBA Draft class already figures to be loaded for teams to sort through at point guard, and the depth continues to filter in. Just this week alone, French guard Theo Maledon, Kentucky guard Ashton Hagans and Arizona's Nico Mannion officially made themselves available for the draft, strengthening a position that has a plethora of young talent, veteran college stars and international zest. They join LaMelo Ball, Tyrese Haliburton, Kira Lewis and Tre Jones among draft-eligible point guards with first-round potential.
While it's a loss for all college teams to see players depart for the draft early, it's especially so for Kentucky, which is now set to lose two starters, and likely more. Hagans' NBA Draft announcement over the weekend was tailed by Tyrese Maxey's on Monday, guaranteeing UK would lose the brunt of its backcourt from last season. Sophomore guard Immanuel Quickley and junior big Nick Richards are the wild cards that could swing UK's 2020 outlook dependent upon if they stay in college or follow Hagans and Maxey.
Of the quartet of Cats, Maxey's NBA potential is considered by evaluators to be the highest. He ranks No. 10 on the CBS Sports Big Board and second among draft-eligible players at his position. Hagans, one of the best defensive stoppers, ranks 34th and 12th, respectively.
As draft commitments continue to roll in throughout the coming days and weeks, we'll monitor each with our continuously updating tracker below along with each player's updated projections. Remember, these are all subject to change due to new NCAA legislation that allows players to test the draft process and either stay in the draft or return to college dependent upon feedback they receive. The deadline for underclassmen to withdraw their name from the draft is June 15 at 5 p.m. ET.
