Statement from NCAA Senior Vice President of Basketball Dan Gavitt on NBA Draft withdrawal date

POSTED: May 13, 2020 -- 6:16 p.m. CT

Wednesday evening, Dan Gavitt, NCAA Senior Vice President of Basketball made this statement regarding the NCAA's decision to push back the date NCAA players have to withdraw from the NBA Draft and still retain college eligibility:

"The NCAA's deadline for men's basketball student-athletes to withdraw from the NBA draft and retain their eligibility will be pushed back from the current June 3 date. This modification is being made with the health and well-being of our student-athletes in mind, along with their ability to make the most informed decisions during this uncertain time, and is based on the recent announcement by the NBA to postpone the 2020 NBA Draft Combine. Out of respect to the NBA's process, the decision on a new withdrawal date will be made once the league has determined a timeline for the 2020 pre-draft process. Working in collaboration with National Association of Basketball Coaches Executive Director Jim Haney and the rest of the coaches' leadership, the NCAA membership will ensure that any change supports a player's decision-making process related to professional opportunities while also protecting their academic pursuits and the opportunity to play college basketball."
