With less than ten days left before the draft, potential prospects are about to hit the deadline of whether or not they choose to remain eligible. Among the updated list of players, 18 decided to forego 2014, which includes 17 international players and one U.S. college player (Mychal Ammons, South Alabama).
DraftExpress released the full-list, which only includes one notable player; 18-year-old Latvian Kristaps Porzingis. The lean 7'0 center was taken 17th overall in Liberty Ballers' own Mock Draft last week, so that entire thing has been thrown for a loop. He was ranked as the 23rd best prospect in DraftExpress's 2014 rankings (which has since changed).
Players have until Monday, June 23 at 5 p.m. EST to decide whether or not they are willing to stay.
