The 2019 NBA draft will be held on June 20, 2019. It will take place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. National Basketball Association (NBA) teams will take turns selecting amateur United States college basketball players and other eligible players, including international players. It will be televised nationally on ESPN. This draft will be the first to feature a new weighted lottery system, replacing the old lottery system, where the three worst teams will each have a 14% chance of winning the lottery.[1] The lottery will take place on May 14, during the NBA playoffs.

Combine[edit]

Draft lottery[edit]

The NBA draft lottery will take place during the Playoffs on May 14, 2019. This will be the first year in which the new NBA draft lottery system is applied, where the draft lottery is expanded to the top four picks (rather than the top three); and where the three teams with the worst records have equal odds. Teams with better records will have an increased chance for a top-four pick when compared to the previous system.

Eligibility and entrants[edit]

The draft is conducted under the eligibility rules established in the league's 2017 collective bargaining agreement (CBA) with its player's union. The previous CBA that ended the 2011 lockout instituted no immediate changes to the draft but called for a committee of owners and players to discuss future changes.

  • All drafted players must be at least 19 years old during the calendar year of the draft. In terms of dates, players who are eligible for the 2019 draft must be born on or before December 31, 2000.
  • Since the 2016 draft, the following rules, as implemented by the NCAA Division I council for that division, are:[3]
    • Declaration for the draft no longer results in automatic loss of college eligibility. As long as a player does not sign a contract with a professional team outside the NBA, or sign with an agent, he will retain college eligibility as long as he makes a timely withdrawal from the draft.
    • NCAA players now have until 10 days after the end of the NBA Draft Combine to withdraw from the draft. Since the combine is held in mid-May, the current deadline is about five weeks after the previous mid-April deadline.
    • NCAA players may participate in the draft combine and are allowed to attend one tryout per year with each NBA team without losing college eligibility.
    • NCAA players may now enter and withdraw from the draft up to two times without loss of eligibility. Previously, the NCAA treated the second declaration of draft eligibility as a permanent loss of college eligibility.
  • Starting this year, any undrafted underclassmen in the college system will have the opportunity to return to their college or university for at least one more season, provided they terminate their prior agreements with the agent they signed up with.[4]

The NBA has since expanded the draft combine to include players with remaining college eligibility (who, like players without college eligibility, can only attend by invitation).[5]

Early entrants[edit]

Players who are not automatically eligible have to declare their eligibility for the draft by notifying the NBA offices in writing no later than 60 days before the draft. For the 2019 draft, the date will fall on April 21. After that date, "early entry" players are able to attend NBA pre-draft camps and individual team workouts to show off their skills and obtain feedback regarding their draft positions. Under the CBA a player may withdraw his name from consideration from the draft at any time before the final declaration date, which is 10 days before the draft. Under current NCAA rules, players have until May 29 (10 days after the draft combine) to withdraw from the draft and retain college eligibility.

A player who has hired an agent forfeits his remaining college eligibility when he is drafted. He can be represented beginning after any basketball season, following a request for an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee. From this draft on, players who declare for the NBA draft and are not selected have the opportunity to return to their school for at least another year, only after terminating all agreements with their agents.[4]

College underclassmen[edit]

International players[edit]

Automatically eligible entrants[edit]

Players who do not meet the criteria for "international" players are automatically eligible if they meet any of the following criteria:[147]

  • They have completed four years of their college eligibility.
  • If they graduated from high school in the U.S., but did not enroll in a U.S. college or university, four years have passed since their high school class graduated.
  • They have signed a contract with a professional basketball team not in the NBA, anywhere in the world, and have played under that contract.

Players who meet the criteria for "international" players are automatically eligible if they meet any of the following criteria:[147]

  • They are at least 22 years old during the calendar year of the draft. In terms of dates, players born on or before December 31, 1997 are automatically eligible for the 2019 draft.
  • They have signed a contract with a professional basketball team not in the NBA within the United States, and have played under that contract.
Other automatically eligible players

Playing professionally since the 2018–19 season.
United States Jordan Ray Atlanta Ballers (JBA) Began playing professionally since the 2018–19 season. [149]

Invited attendees[edit]

The NBA annually invites around 15–20 players to sit in the so-called "green-room", a special room set aside at the draft site for the invited players plus their families and agents. When his name is called, the player leaves the room and goes up on stage. Other players who are not invited are allowed to attend the ceremony. They sit in the stands with the fans and walk up stage when or if they are drafted.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Nationality indicates the player's national team or representative nationality. If a player has not competed at the international level, then the nationality indicates the national team which the player is eligible to represent according to FIBA rules.
