The NBA draft is one of the oldest sports drafts in the United States of America. It involves selecting or drafting amateur and other eligible players from colleges annually to join the national basketball league. It usually takes place when the NBA breaks for an off-season.

The draft, as usual, consisted of two rounds that involve 60 players. Each of the 30 NBA teams got a chance to choose players in each round. The first 14 picks were as usual preserved for the teams who failed to make the NBA playoffs in the previous season.

NBA 2021 Draft Eligibility:

· All players in the draft must be 19 years during or before the draft year.

· All participating players must declare their qualifications sixty days before the draft
