2021 NBA Draft: List of NCAA players that have declared for the 2021 NBA Draft

With the NCAA Tournament behind us and the Baylor Bears crowned as your 2021 National Champions, it's time to shift focus to the men's college basketball players that have declared for the 2021 NBA Draft, which is set for July 29, 2021.

Below you can find some important information about this year's pre-draft declaration process and a list of players that have submitted their names into the 2021 NBA Draft pool.

How does the NCAA's decision to grant an extra year of eligibility affect the pre-draft process?

Due to the coronavirus pandemic cutting the 2019-20 college basketball season short, the NCAA declared it will grant an extra year of eligibility to winter athletes. That means college seniors could return for an additional season in 2021-22 if they choose.

To create a deadline for those players on the fence of going pro or returning to college, the NBA is requiring that seniors apply for early entry to become draft-eligible in 2021.

The NBA announced that deadline for early entry is Sunday, May 30. The deadline for players to withdraw from the 2021 NBA Draft is Monday, July 19.

Can players still return to school if they hire an agent or go undrafted?

Since 2019, players are allowed to hire an agent for the NBA Draft process without forfeiting their remaining college eligibility. They can also elect to return to school if they go undrafted, but that only applies to players that participate in the NBA Draft Combine.

This year's NBA Draft combine will take place from Monday, June 21 to Sunday, June 27.
