The NBA announced late Tuesday night a list of 247 college players who have filed as early entry candidates for the 2022 NBA Draft.

On that list were a few surprises from the Pac-12, most notably Oregon’s Quincy Guerrier and Will Richardson and USC’s Boogie Ellis.

None of the three have made public declarations as to their intent for next season, but all could still return to play another year of college ball at their respective schools. It’s also unclear if any have hired an agent yet.

Richardson was Oregon’s leading scorer last season, putting up just over 14 points a game while shooting the 3-ball at a 39% clip. He started 30 games but missed the team’s final five with what was later revealed to be a battle with mono. After the season, head coach Dana Altman said he simply wanted what was best for Richardson, whether that be the draft, a return, or a decision to enter the portal and play his college ball elsewhere.

Guerrier started 35 games for the Ducks in his first year in the program (Syracuse transfer) and put up 10 points a game. News of his entrance into the NBA Draft waters comes after former Colorado guard Keeshawn Barthelemy committed to the Ducks, in part, because of Guerrier’s return to the team.

Ellis helped lead the Trojans to a 26-8 record, putting up 12.5 points and 2.4 assists per game in 33 starts. TrojanSports’ Ryan Young reported in late March that coach Andy Enfield expected both Ellis and guard Drew Peterson to return for the 2022-23 season. Peterson has also put his name into the draft but did so while maintaining his eligibility.

Players who have applied for early entry have the right to withdraw their names from consideration for the Draft by notifying the NBA of their decision in writing no later than 2 p.m. PT on Monday, June 13. Under NCAA rules, in order to retain college basketball eligibility, college players who have entered NBA Draft 2022 must withdraw by Wednesday, June 1.
