Default Complete list: Who's In, who's out of 2007 draft?


Complete list: Who's In, who's out of 2007 draft?

By Chad Ford

ESPN.com



This is the time of year when college players begin to declare their intentions for the NBA draft.

For the most part, information received at this time of year is fairly unreliable.

Two years ago at this time, both Chris Paul and Marvin Williams were saying they wanted to return to school. We all know how that went.

But Joakim Noah, Al Horford, Corey Brewer and Josh McRoberts all decided to stay in school last season, and there seems to be a growing desire among players to stick around college for another season, even when their draft stock is high.

College underclassmen as well as international players who don't turn 22 this year have until April 29 to declare themselves eligible for the NBA draft.

Last year, 94 underclassmen and international players declared for the draft. However, 47 withdrew before the deadline, leaving 37 college underclassmen and 10 international players under the age of 22.

Who's in and who's out this year? To find out, I spoke with a number of NBA executives, scouts, NBA player agents and individuals close to players making the decision.

We'll update the list over the course of the next six weeks.

That sucks. I really wanted to see Julian Wright and Mike Conley tear up the NBA
