LA Expected To Interview De'Aaron Fox At NBA Draft Combine

However, a majority of the projected lottery players opted not to come, including UCLA guard Lonzo Ball, Kansas guard Josh Jackson and Kentucky guard Malik Monk.

They call it the NBA Draft Combine but what happens here the next two days will shape the 2018 college basketball season as well as affect the upcoming NBA Draft.

The only candidates for the Top 5 pick who went to the Combine were Markelle Fultz and De'Aaron Fox, both point guards.

"I remember it like it was yesterday", Durant said, as he adjusted his body to get comfortable in his seat. They were giggling with each other that I couldn't lift 185 pounds (on a bench press), and I was like, 'All right, keep laughing.

"But I think the one thing I'm really trying to focus on is just try to get stronger. If he can be a pick-and-pop guy or even stretch his range out to the 3-point line, I could see him being a second-unit power forward or small-ball center", Fraschilla said.

"Yeah, it was a good day, I though I competed well", Jackson said.

With a stacked draft class like the one we have this year, the Mavericks should get a great deal on a player no matter where they fall.

DX now has the Suns taking Caleb Swanigan, PF/C, but with Chriss and Bender still on the team I'm not sure I see this one happening. I knew that you don't need to [bench-press] to lift a basketball up.

Vogel said he's also gotten to know interim Magic general manager Matt Lloyd better.

As many in his corner had pointed out previously, however, Williams also was quick to point to Mason's intangible qualities, which Oklahoma City Thunder coach Billy Donovan also said could play a big role in the draft. I knew that if I worked as hard as I could, then that s-- wouldn't matter at the end of the day. "I kind of knew that was my last ride, but that doesn't stop my competitive juices from flowing".

But as the Suns await the draft lottery with the hopes they'll have a choice to take Fultz, they'll continue evaluating the players that took part in the measuring, athletic testing and 5-on-5 play at the combine. "You learn a lot about guys". In the NBA, Mitchell will likely to be asked to move to point guard because of his size. "I think he's going to play in the league". "Frank will probably be a guy that is going to be a backup in the National Basketball Association, but could have a long career if he finds the right places to land". They can get a feel for the draft's strengths, as well as players' attitudes and develop a general consensus of who's who - all without gearing up to draft a player like Patton 5th. "Whoever decides to take a chance on me then I will try my best to not make them look like a fool". Colangelo may head back overseas to attend the EuroLeague Final Four on May 19-21 in Istanbul, Turkey. On the offensive side, I just let my skills show. "And if he didn't go there, that wouldn't affect me either way". "He'll always be a member of our brotherhood and we want nothing but the very best for him". But he said he was more skilled as a player than people thought, and his one semester at Kentucky had made him a "different player".
