2018 NBA Draft: List of early entrants

With four teams left in the NCAA Tournament, the list of early entrants into the 2018 NBA Draft is growing by the day.

The NCAA Tournament is down to four teams, so as teams get eliminated players with NBA aspirations are making decisions about their future. The rules allow for declaring, not hiring an agent and getting a better idea of how you’re regarded, then going back to school if that’s a better choice than going into the NBA draft.
