The NBA said a total of 163 players from colleges “and other educational institutions” filed with the league. Players may withdraw their names from draft consideration by notifying the NBA of their decision in writing 10 days before the draft. Another 42 international players also filed.
The draft is scheduled to be held June 25.
Rhode Island junior guard Fatts Russell, who starred at Imhotep Charter High School, also filed for the draft.
Twelve players from the Big East declared for the draft. The American Athletic Conference and the Atlantic 10 had 10 apiece and the Colonial Athletic Association had two.
