The 2019 NBA Combine kicks off on May 14. As the date looms for NCAA Basketball prospects, here’s a look at some of the biggest snubs.
It’s NBA Draft season in the NCAA Basketball world as the NBA Combine has become one of the more notable events of the process. It gives NBA scouts from all 30 teams an opportunity to see a lot of potential talent all in one place.
The official list of combine participants has officially been released and there are some notable snubs. While some stars, like Rui Hachimura, declined invites, others will have to prove themselves at the inaugural G-League Elite Camp set to kick off on May 12 if they hope to get a look at the NBA Combine.
With the G-League Elite Camp, players will have an opportunity to perform in front of G-League scouts and if their performance warrants it, they’ll earn an invite to the NBA Combine.
While a ton of underclassmen like Keldon Johnson (Kentucky), Charles Bassey (Western Kentucky) and Nassir Little (North Carolina) earned invites, some upperclassmen could have their work cut out for them to get to the NBA Combine.
It wouldn’t shock me if all five players snubbed originally earn invites with their play during the G-League Elite Camp on May 12-14. Here’s a look at the five biggest snubs from the 2019 NBA Combine.
