ROTHSTEIN 45: PRESEASON EDITION

This preseason edition of the ROTHSTEIN 45 for the 2024-25 season is here!

This list will be updated DAILY as its tracks every single piece of player movement during the offseason.

All players who have an additional year of eligibility will be penciled in to return unless they're projected to be first-round picks in the 2024 NBA Draft or proclaim that they plan to stay in the 2024 NBA Draft.

If those players announce other plans, their status will be updated accordingly.

All college basketball odds come from FanDuel Sportsbook.
