Nba Draft
The NBA
NBA
DRAFT is an annual event dating back to 1947 in which the thirty teams from the National Basketball Association (NBA) can draft players who are eligible and wish to join the league. These are typically college basketball players, but international players are also eligible to be drafted. College players who have finished their four-year college eligibility are automatically eligible for selection, while the underclassmen have to declare their eligibility and give up their remaining college eligibility. International players who are at least 23 years old are automatically eligible for selection, while the players younger than 22 have to declare their eligibility. Players who are not automatically eligible but have declared their eligibility are often called "early-entrants" or "early-entry candidates". The draft usually takes place at the end of June, during the NBA
NBA
offseason. Since 1989, the draft has consisted of two rounds; this is much shorter than the entry drafts of the other major professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada , all of which run at least seven rounds. Sixty players are selected in each draft. No player may sign with the NBA

1993–94 Nba Season
A SEASON is a division of the year marked by changes in weather , ecology , and amount of daylight . Seasons result from Earth\'s orbit around the Sun
Sun
and Earth
Earth
's axial tilt relative to the ecliptic plane. In temperate and polar regions, the seasons are marked by changes in the intensity of sunlight that reaches the Earth's surface, variations of which may cause animals to undergo hibernation or to migrate, and plants to be dormant. Red and green trees in autumn (fall) During May, June, and July, the Northern Hemisphere is exposed to more direct sunlight because the hemisphere faces the Sun. The same is true of the Southern Hemisphere in November, December, and January. It is Earth's axial tilt that causes the Sun
Sun
to be higher in the sky during the summer months , which increases the solar flux . However, due to seasonal lag , June, July, and August are the warmest months in the Northern Hemisphere while December, January, and February are the warmest months in the Southern Hemisphere. In temperate and subpolar regions, four calendar -based seasons are generally recognized: _spring _, _summer _, _autumn _ or _fall_, and _winter _. Ecologists often use a six-season model for temperate climate regions: _prevernal_, _vernal_, _estival_, _serotinal_, _autumnal_, and _hibernal_
