Who is in the 2024 NBA Draft? Updated list of prospects to declare, from Bronny James to Rob Dillingham

March Madness is behind us and the 2023-24 NBA season is coming to a close.

That means the 2024 NBA Draft is right around the corner. And related events, including the draft lottery and the scouting combine, are even closer, with both coming up in May.

With the college basketball season in the books, top NBA prospects are starting to declare for the draft.

The choice might be easy for a projected top-10 pick such as Kentucky’s Rob Dillingham, but other players face tougher decisions. Take USC star freshman Bronny James as a prime example. The son of the famed NBA star will test the draft waters, but also entered the transfer portal and is maintaining his college eligibility for now.

Which players have declared for the 2024 NBA Draft? The Sporting News has you covered with an updated list below.

What is early entry?
