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.
