    Hey guys,

    Do any of you know if the NBA draft is similar to baseball? If a player declares for the draft, does NOT hire and agent and gets drafted at say #16, can he still turn it down and go back to school? Hypothetically of course.....:thumbsup:

    No, he would have until May 8th to pull his name out to remain eligible. If he remains in the NBA draft he is deemed ineligible.

    No. In the NBA, there's a withdraw date (May 8th). If you declare and don't withdraw by that date then you can't return to school.
