The NCAA says draft prospects have until 10 days after the NBA draft combine or Aug. 3, whichever comes first, to withdraw from the 2020 draft.

The original early entrant withdrawal date was June 3.

Here is the full NCAA statement:

“Three weeks ago, we announced that the deadline would be extended indefinitely until the NBA made an official decision on the postponed combine, pre-draft process and draft,” Danny Gavitt of the NCAA said this week. “We have an internal plan in place to announce a new withdrawal date and timeline. But we won’t communicate until the NBA announces their plan.”

This will somewhat complicate the decision-making process for players still testing the draft waters and for colleges waiting for their decisions, as schools will be starting around that time in the fall.

The new date for the 2020 NBA Draft is Oct. 15.
