Eligibility rules

The basic eligibility rules for the draft are:

  • All drafted players must be at least 19 years old during the calendar year of the draft. In terms of dates, players eligible for the 2008 draft must be born on or before December 31, 1989.[1]
  • Any player who is not an "international player", as defined in the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) between the league and its players union, must be at least one year removed from the graduation of his high school class.[1] The CBA definition of "international" excludes anyone who completed high school in the U.S., or enrolled at a U.S. college or university.[2]

The "one year out of high school" requirement is in addition to the age requirement. For example, although O. J. Mayo, who declared for the draft after one season at USC, turned 19 in November 2006, six months before his high school graduation, this was the first draft for which he was eligible.
