NBA Draft Early Entry List 2006


| June 20, 2006

Forty Seven players who had declared as early entry candidates for the 2006 NBA Draft have withdrawn their names from the draft. There are currently 37 collegiate and 10 international prospects that are early entry candidates.

Of the underclassmen who had declared early entry but then withdraw from consideration, InsideHoops.com had Aaron Gray as a probable late first rounder, Rudy Fernandez as a first round bubble player who was more likely to go late first than early second, and Arron Afflalo, Morris Almond, Bobby Brown, Richard Roby and Brad Newley all going in the second round.

This is the final, official NBA early entry underclassmen list for the 2006 draft.
