Who's in and who's out of this year's NBA draft?
We spoke with a number of NBA executives, scouts, NBA player agents and individuals close to players making the decision to come up with this list, which will be updated over the next six weeks.

College underclassmen and international players who don't turn 22 this year have until April 28 to declare themselves eligible. However, under the NCAA's deadline, underclassmen who want to retain their college eligibility have until April 16 to withdraw -- two days before the NBA's withdrawal date.
The NCAA's deadline, which was first instituted in 2011, dramatically reduces the ability of college underclassmen to determine their draft stock. Still, 49 college players and 17 international players declared as early-entry candidates last year. Only 11 of them withdrew from the draft -- down dramatically from previous years, when 50 or more underclassmen would return to school.
Here's the latest on where this year's NBA draft prospects stand:
IN THE DRAFT
Players who officially have declared for the 2013 NBA draft
(* - to preserve eligibility, player has not hired an agent)
Tony Mitchell, F, So., North Texas
Mitchell began the season in our Top 10. He showed big-time promise as a freshman and scouts expected him to dominate given that he plays in the Sun Belt. Instead, Mitchell regressed. He is a terrific rebounder and a great athlete, but his lack of progress on the offensive end, combined with the Mean Green's terrible performance (12-20 this season), have hurt his draft stock. He likely goes somewhere in the 20-40 range.

Players who have officially announced they will return to college next year
Shane Larkin, PG, So., Miami
Larkin told reporters that, "at this time," he plans to return to Miami for his junior season. Obviously, there's some wiggle room here. If he has a huge NCAA tournament, he could change his mind -- especially if he works his way into the top half of the first round.
Damn, Adetokunbo has catapulted himself into an ESPN Insider list of International players? Wow, Euroballer called this from a 100 miles away, back when there was NOTHING on google about him.
From what I've read, even Sam Presti went all the way to Greece to see him, he is the real deal, from the videos I've seen of him, I think he may be the next big thing.
