The NCAA Tournament is trekking along while the NBA regular season is close to coming to an end. That means it’s time to start preparing for the 2016 NBA Draft, which will take place June 23 in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

LSU star freshman Ben Simmons was the first high-profile underclassman to declare for the draft, but others are beginning to follow suit, especially as more teams and players get eliminated from the NCAA Tournament.

The NCAA moved back the NBA Early Entry Eligibility Deadline until after the NBA Draft Combine, and the new rules will allow players to declare for the draft and get feedback from NBA teams without risking their college eligibility, as long as they don’t hire an agent.
