NCAA's draft deadline passing quietly in Kentucky

The NCAA's deadline for players to withdraw their names from entering the NBA draft is Tuesday.

However, no announcements were expected from Kentucky, where the Wildcats have as many as five players possibly leaving early.

Coach John Calipari says his Wildcats are adhering to the NBA's deadline of April 29 to decide their futures.

Around the nation, the dual and dueling deadlines have players and coaching staffs wondering what's next during this confusing 19-day window. Some players - including Kansas' Thomas Robinson and Ohio State's Jared Sullinger - have already said they're entering the draft.

Others, like Indiana teammates Cody Zeller and Christian Watford, and Duke's Mason Plumlee are coming back. The new rule does have a major impact: players can't work out for NBA teams before making a decision.
