https://www.nba.com/article/2019/05/08/66-players-attend-nba-draft-combine

The NBA announced today that 66 players are expected to attend the 2019 NBA Draft Combine powered by Under Armour.

The NBA Draft Combine is the first step in the Draft process for NBA hopefuls and features five-on-five games as well as shooting and strength and agility drills at Quest Multisport in Chicago on Thursday, May 16 and Friday, May 17. ESPN 2 will provide coverage both days from 3-7 p.m. ET.

A select number of draft-eligible players will be invited to participate in the 2019 NBA Draft Combine based on their performance in the NBA G League Elite Camp, which will take place May 12-14 at Quest Multisport.

A little disappointed that Rui Hachimura is not in that list.

Sounds like it's a pretty common thing for Gonzaga's top players to do. Sabonis and a few others took the same path. It's not a big deal for me. The scrimmages are the biggest thing for me and the he top players skip those. I'm more worried about our rumored interest in Cam Reddish

Oh god. Please no.

"And, with the fifth pick the New York Knicks select... Cam Reddish!"

we'd need a mental health triage site identified in advance to deal with that catastrophe. i'd suggest stout on w 33 stocked with appropriate medical supplies (don julio, woodford reserve, glenlivet, etc. . . .)

It’s Ewing I feel sorry for- having to grin and bare it, he’ll be hard pressed to top Mills reaction when we fell in the KP draft:

Oakley should be our representative. Silver or whoever is up on the stage representing NBA would fear for his life if we didn't get #1

Watching the Giants draft has really scared me of what's to come.

Hopefully the Knicks go with best available and stay away from out of the box picks like a Reddish at a 2 or 3 spot. Don.t see why they would. If we fall to 4 or 5 then there is not much separation in the talent level. Would not mind if they traded it for multiple picks or a chance to get Davis.

Liked hearing Adam Silver bring up the idea of changing the NBA season from just 82 games and playoffs and looking at European Soccer with mid-season cups (something I've been wanting for a while), and saying maybe a play-in (would that be for the playoffs?).
Forum Po Po and #33 for a reason...

We defied the odds and moved up 2 spots. The Kharma Police did not give us the ultimate prize but we defied math.
Not Suns and not Cleveland. They did not fall, they stayed with their odds.

Zion conspiracy to quell Davis leaving? He is asking to be traded. Not like when Lebron left Clev as a free agent. Pels will do very well in a trade. You think the 29 other owners would agree to this kind of conspiracy?

In the future we have other picks. If KP falters the pick becomes more valuable if Dallas does not make playoffs. Eddy style potential.

Going forward we can trade players for picks. More opportunities increase “Luck”. Thats for another day.
The Zion hype machine casts a large shadow on the others. Time for them to shine on their own. Ja or R.J.? Perhaps another ascends too? Door is open.

Low % act would be Zion threaten to go back to school. He has not signed with an agent.
Pels own his rights, he does not get "re-drafted" if he did this.
He does this real quietly. Don't embarrass the Pels. Don't make Zion look bad either. Make it like its good for Pel's.
Have to make a starphuch trade because its makes look Pels look bad. They have to sell tickets. Zion has to make a list of teams. Usual suspects.
Lakers, Knicks, Nets, Clippers, Philly, and of course Celtics.
We'll see if a rumor gets floated because "its a good idea for Pels to restock on talent."
Parlay AD and Zion is not an easy task and I can't begin to decipher how you do this.
This is only being spoken about in the media because Zion has not signed with an agent. This is not a Nalodian thought buster.
Benefits nobody to take this public.

Knowing my life as a Knicks fan, it’s probably the Knicks.

Reading the post and this sentence really caught my attention

Clippers adviser Jerry West has reportedly tabbed Morant as the best talent in the draft – better than Williamson.

Guessing the Knicks would be the first team who would consider picking out of the consensus top three, with Morant available at 2. Believe that the scouting staff, mgmt has shown they know how to find talent. Talent that doesnt always slot where the experts say they should go.

It would probably mean that DSJr is on his way out, if thats how it plays out. His back might have scared them off. Will have to check some Garland game tape. Whatever team made the promise has to be high enough a pick for Garland to bail, so it could be the Knicks. Doubt Garland would do this for a team with a mid first round pick. Would pass up a chance to move up.

I seem to remember reading a few days ago that the knicks were interested in Garland, however I don't think it's them as I don't think they'd offer a promise this early AND before they've resolved whether they're trading for AD.

For Garland to accept a promise so early, it must be either a relatively high pick or in a city/team he really wants to go to. Yesterday or the day before there was a report the Lakers were interested in him. What's his favourite team?:

https://www.reddit.com/r/lakers/comments/bp344b/darius_garland_in_2018_was_asked_who_is_his/

Yep Lakers. Also Lakers were originally assumed to be picking a bit later in the draft, where he was originally expected to be available, so they would have already scouted him extensively.

Only thing that makes me doubt it's the Lakers is that I'd expect them tory to use the pick in a trade, so why make a promise to a player before you've decided if your trading them

Jeremy Woo on Mannix’s pod said Garland may have pulled out for health reasons.

this is something to watch. I have a lot of respect for West's opinion and it blows my mind how unlike so many others his understanding has evolved with the game. he always seems a step ahead. Wish he were in this organization
