The 2014 NBA draft field is beginning to take shape with deadlines coming and going for prospects in the NCAA.
Next up is the NBA combine, which takes place in Chicago and runs from May 14-18. The NBA lottery goes down on May 20, and the NBA early entry withdrawal date (for international prospects) follows on June 16.
From now until then, expect prospects to be in training mode for the big day.
Our big board is a ranking of the top 50 prospects who've either declared for the draft or are expected to declare, not the order in which we're projecting them to be selected. 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 thrive after college.
Any prospect who's announced that he'll be returning to school has been left off this board.
