The first day NBA draft combine began today, June 7th at 10am and is airing live on ESPNU and ESPN3. You can also watch the 2nd day of the combine, friday June 8th on ESPNU and ESPN3. It will also begin at 10am.
In addition to live reporting and analysis, viewers will get an inside look at how the expected top draft picks fair in the following skills challenges:
- Standing Vertical Leap
- Maximum Vertical Leap
- Lane Agility Drill
- Modified Lane Agility Drill
- 3/4 Court Sprint
There are 60 players scheduled to participate in this years combine, Anthony Davis is among them. I do not expect to see Anthony Davis participating in most of the combine events as he is already gaurenteed to be the first pick in the draft. Last year #1 pick Kyrie Irving was a no show for the majority of the combine.
The Hornets have the 10th pick in the draft and will be watching the combine non-stop to determine which player will fit the best in their system.
