This is a good article that explains the key dates when it comes to the NBA draft. The April 22 date is confusing because it is essentially meaningless. So long as you don't hire an agent and other things, you can "declare," participate in the NBA combine and choose to come back to school. The real date to keep in mind is May 30. That's when a player has to make the decision to stay or go. This is also probably one of the reasons why GU 2018 recruit Brandon Williams is waiting until June 1 to take his visit. He wants to see how everyone's rosters look, INCLUDING Gonzaga's roster.
