• Play ESPN.com's 2006 Lottery + Mock Draft and see the results for 2,184 potential lottery combinations.

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

College underclassmen who previously have not declared for the draft and who have avoided hiring an agent can withdraw from the draft without penalty (provided that they pay for all of their expenses related to draft workouts) until June 18. International players have no restrictions on how many times they can declare and withdraw from the draft.

Last year, 61 college underclassmen, 12 high school seniors, and 35 international players declared for the 2005 draft. Fifty of those players withdrew their names before the deadline. This year high school seniors are ineligible for the draft.

ESPN.com will use our contacts throughout the league to provide daily updates of who's in, who's out and who's still sitting on the fence up until the April 29 deadline. Click on a player's name to read my projected draft ranking.
