Most are on ESPN+ and some are on ESPN2. I'm sure more will be added to the E2 list.

Of course they are, as long as they meet NBA eligibility requirements.

Most, of course, are ineligible because they've already been drafted or been eligible for a prior draft.  But this year there's a special G-League Team for players who chose not to go to college this year, and there are a couple of big names on it in Jalen Green and Jonthan Kuminga who could even go in the top 5.  Of the second-tier players, I'm a big fan of Isaiah Todd as someone to draft-and-stash at the end of the 2nd or sign to a 2-way if he goes undrafted.  He has a lot of potential as a playmaking PF with another year or two of development.  Amir Johnson is on his G-League team, and that's a pretty decent comp for the type of player he could become.

Unrelated -- I'm new here.  Is there a point where I won't have to enter verification letters before every post to prove I'm not a bot.  They're very difficult to read.  I've had to request new images multiple times before my posts to find something legible.

Hmmm...I seem to recall that being a thing when we first made the move over to this page.  I'll ask.
Yup

Yeah, obviously there are players who were already drafted or applied for draft and went undrafted and hence no longer eligible. I think the question was for those that by-passed college, straight out of HS,  to play in G League and therefore are legible to be drafted.

Also foreign players that didn't submit names for draft in the past. Common sense shouldn't need to be explained. We all know that veterans now play in the G League.

I already mentioned the top 3 players that are draft eligible, if they so choose, in the OP.

A couple of the top prospects highlights. There's more to be found so help yourselves.

Kuminga is like a bigger version of Jaylen Brown.

Kuminga and Green both need to work on their deep ball.

If anyone hasn't been paying to the G-League, Jarrett Jack is out there playing pretty well as the veteran presence alongside Jalen Green, Kuminga, Isaiah Todd and Daishen Nix. Crazy that he's still around.

They also have old friend Amir Johnson. What a funny team.
