With less than ten days until Draft night, several more high profile names have removed their names from the 2010 process, including forwards Pablo Aguilar of Spain and Germany's Robin Benzing. With potential lottery picks Donatas Motiejunas and Jan Vesely dropped out earlier in the process, Aguilar and Benzing were two names on the rise amongst GMs, possibly moving into the late 1st Round as teams looked to stockpile talent oversears, waiting for these players to develop. However, these teams will have to look elsewhere now.
Of the Early Entry International Candidates for the 2010 NBA Draft, only one guard remains, Thomas Heurtel who plays for the French team Strasbourg, while the four other early entrants are big men- Dusan Korac (Montenegro), Tibor Pleiss (Germany), Ryan Richards (Spain), and Kevin Seraphin (France). Only Pleiss and Seraphin are expected to be taken in the 1st Round next Thursday.
