Depending on who declares and who returns, we could be looking at a really promising field for the 2014 NBA draft. Unlike last year, this year's draft actually offers some potential star power at the top.
Remember, our big board is a ranking of the top 50 draft-eligible prospects, not the order in which we're projecting them to be drafted. For the rankings, we've taken a number of different factors into account and weighed them appropriately. Upside, NBA-readiness, work ethic—these are just some of the things we're looking for when determining who's going to pan out in the Association.
Anyone who's already stated they will be returning to school or Europe has been knocked off the board, including Croatia's Dario Saric, who will not enter, according to ESPN.com's Chad Ford (subscription required), and Utah's Delon Wright.
