R.J. Hunter is going to have a little bit of competition to be selected as one of 30 players in the first round of the NBA draft.

The league released the list of early entry and international players who have declared for the draft. Hunter is one of 91 players.

This list will change. Players can withdraw their names by notifying the NBA by 5 p.m. on June 15.

Hunter, a 6-foot-5 guard who owns a lot of Georgia State’s school scoring records, is projected to be a mid-to-late first-round pick in June’s NBA draft.
