The early entrant list for the NBA Draft — also known as the list of guys NBA teams want to draft — is now official. The league released it on Wednesday.

What follows is the complete list. Said list contains the guys who are going to go high and who you know — Nerlens Noel, Trey Burke, Ben McLemore, etc. — and a bunch of guys who threw their name in but are as likely to be drafted as you and me.

On the bottom is the list of international players who have thrown their hat in the ring this year, and you want to get to know guys like Dennis Schroder and Sergey Karasev because they will be picked in the first round.

    Feels like forever since the knicks had a traditional draft pick. Shumpert has turned out great so far and this year we had Prig and Cope. Kind of hoping for a good young scorer with their late first round pick.

      Naturally, this is the year we didn’t give up our 1st, and in a weak draft full of role players and only one potential superstar (Nerlens) SMH.

      Although I do like Otto, but CJ Leslie has a lot of that Aldridge game, which is Shareef Abdur-Rahim all over again (big numbers on a bad team, won’t get you over the hump).

      But like you, I’m just glad to HAVE a 1st for once.

    Wow I totally forgot Prigioni and Copeland were the Knicks picks last year. Both worked out great for them!

  3. eboneseagles - May 1, 2013 at 12:10 PM

    They weren’t picks, they came overseas on one year deals. Last years pick was a Greek bum now owned by the Blazers.

    What do you guys think? Mostly duds as usual, especially on the international side?

    • jcmeyer10 - May 1, 2013 at 12:34 PM

      Have a Colorado bias but I think Andre Roberson’s rebounding will translate.

    • Mr. Wright 212 - May 1, 2013 at 1:34 PM

      See my comment above, I’ve watched about 3/4 of these guys play a good deal, I don’t see any real stars other than 2-3 guys with potential (Gorgui can also be a more powerful Serge Ibaka, IMO).

    do the thunder have a lottery pick ?

    • eboneseagles - May 1, 2013 at 1:25 PM

      They’re in the playoffs wtf

    • Mr. Wright 212 - May 1, 2013 at 1:45 PM

      Yes, the Thunder do; they have two, actually — Top 3 (or 15-30) protected, and another that is Top 20 protected, based upon what they said at the time of the trades last offseason.

  6. franchiseplaya - May 1, 2013 at 1:51 PM

    Thanks for listing the International players. I always confuse Bogdan Bogdanovic with Bogdan Radosavljevic.

  7. coryfor3 - May 1, 2013 at 2:25 PM

    Wow- that is a lot of good players who will go undrafted.

  8. louisvillecardinals - May 1, 2013 at 3:01 PM

    Louisville Cardinals 2013 National Champions! Gorgeui Dieng should go Top 5 but more likely Top 10….terrific upside great potential and a masterful shot blocker and defender !

  9. cmehustle - May 2, 2013 at 6:25 AM

    Wow 77 early entrants?? These guys all know there are only 60 picks in the draft i hope! That combined with the college seniors who will get picked makes for an interesting choice….

  10. saint1997 - May 2, 2013 at 8:40 AM

    I love draft time!!! Look out for next years draft, 2014 will be best in a loong time
