NBA Draft deadline tracker 2024: Latest news on Bronny James, Mark Sears, other notable college basketball stars

Wednesday marks decision day for college basketball players looking to make the jump to the NBA. 

The 2024 NBA Draft is less than a month away. The 30 clubs in the league are gearing up to find their next roster pieces for the future, and prospects are anxiously waiting to hear their fate. Plenty of teams and players have already met, doing due diligence ahead of the selection show. 

Not every prospect currently in the pool of entrants will remain. Wednesday is the final day to remove themselves for draft consideration, as players may elect to instead go back to college for one more year. In the NIL age, that option is more enticing than ever. 

One of the biggest names done with the collegiate scene is Bronny James Jr, the son of Lakers superstar LeBron James. He put his name in for draft eligibility, while also entering the NCAA transfer portal. After debating between the two, he is electing to go the professional route, and there could be plenty of suitors interested in his services, especially considering what selecting Bronny could mean for landing LeBron in free agency

Who has withdrawn from 2024 NBA Draft?

May 29 marks the deadline for players that previously declared for the 2024 NBA Draft, but are electing to go back to college for another year. Prospects have until 11:59 p.m. ET to make their decision. 

This section will be updated with any of the notable players that took their names out of the draft. 

Alex Karaban (UConn)

UConn F Alex Karaban announced in a tweet that he is returning to the Huskies for the 2024-25 season and withdrawing from the NBA Draft.

It’s major news for UConn’s three-peat hopes, as Dan Hurley would have lost all five starters from this past season if Karaban stayed in the draft. A projected second-round pick, Karaban started on both title-winning teams but has a chance to really step into a major role as a redshirt junior after taking a step forward this past season.

Johnell Davis (Arkansas)

It wouldn’t have been a surprise to see Davis draw real interest from NBA teams after a terrific final season at FAU, but the guard’s decision to transfer to John Calipari’s Razorbacks in April was a hint that his college career wasn’t over just yet.

Davis averaged 18.2 points and 6.3 rebounds per game in 2023-24, shooting 48.3 percent from the field, and he was a significant piece of the Owls’ Final Four run in 2023.

Brooks Barnhizer (Northwestern)

Barnhizer stepped into a starting role for the first time in his junior season and proved to be a major piece for Northwestern, averaging 14.6 points and 7.5 rebounds per game. With Boo Buie out of eligibility, Barnhizer is set to be a key cog on both ends of the floor for the Wildcats next season.

Ben Humrichous (Illinois)

Illinois always expected to have Humrichous available after the forward transferred from Evansville, and Brad Underwood now knows definitively after the senior withdrew from the NBA Draft on Wednesday.

Humrichous averaged 14.7 points and 4.7 rebounds per game in his first season at the Division I level, shooting a stellar 41.4 percent from 3-point range.

Who has declared for the 2024 NBA Draft?

Players previously put their name for early entry into the 2024 NBA Draft. These prospects can decide whether or not to forego the rest of their college eligibility and officially declare for the draft, or decide to go back to the NCAA for another season. 

This section will be updated with any of the players who removed themselves from draft eligibility.
