While talking to ESPN, McClung revealed that 'going through this NBA pre-draft process' is extremely challenging for him. As a lot of uncertainty lies around the draft, he can technically withdraw before June 15. McClung is currently looking forward to NBA teams getting back to him and is ready to give them 'an opportunity to get to know him' on a more personal level. However, he is aware that due to the coronavirus outbreak, the draft process could be different this year.
Apart from McClung, Anthony Edwards, Killiam Hayes, Tyrese Haliburton, Isaac Okoro, Onyeka Okongwu and Obi Toppin are some of the NBA 2020 Draft prospects. Hayes, Haliburton, Edwards and Okoro are among many players who have already applied for the upcoming draft. While the NBA season is suspended indefinitely since March 11 due to the coronavirus outbreak, some reports claim that the draft can also be pushed forward. However, as no official announcement has been made, the draft is still scheduled for June 25.
