What are the rules surrounding players entering the draft?
Players who declare for the draft have until July 2nd week to withdraw their name and become eligible to sign with any team in the league. If they don’t withdraw their name by then, they’ll automatically be drafted by the team with whom they were originally declared for the draft. Players can only return after completing college eligibility requirements.
Which teams may hold the rights to each player?
Teams have the right to protect the rights to players if they fall into select categories outlined by the NBA. Teams with the worst record at the end of the regular season would not receive selection priority, but could still acquire players by trading back in the draft order. In addition, teams based outside the United States cannot draft American players.

In addition to the lottery, the NBA holds its annual entry draft each summer. Each team has a certain number of picks they can use, depending on their position in the league. In total, 30 players are drafted into the NBA, but only 20 play for the final roster.
Every player selected is guaranteed a spot on their team’s active roster, although some rookie contracts last longer than others. The draft is usually held in June.
Players are chosen using several methods including the traditional three-round method, where the top prospects are chosen in each round.
A second method is called the “combine,” where many athletes are invited to attend a combine in hopes of being drafted. Combine invites include former college stars, players from overseas, and even high school standouts.
