NBA Draft Combine Participants List

NBA Draft Combine Participants List
May 11, 2011, 05:52 pm
Next week all 30 NBA teams will convene in Chicago to evaluate most of the top players in this year's draft class. While the official NBA Draft Combine has been stripped of virtually all competitive on-court action in recent years, NBA teams still place great stock in the combine for other reasons.

In addition to athletic measurements and testing, along with some light on-court drills, every player is put through an official NBA physical, which is dispersed to all 30 teams. Further, players are available for private interviews with NBA teams, which are a noteworthy part of the evaluation process for many.
