UNLV to host NBA scouting combine

UNLV will follow in the footsteps of LSU and Kentucky and hold its own NBA scouting combine later this month, on October 23rd and 24th to be exact. Rob Dauster of NBC Sports’ College Basketball Talk reported the development.

It’s certainly no surprise that UNLV would do this, as the Runnin’ Rebels have a great deal of players on the roster with NBA potential. Freshman center Stephen Zimmerman is currently projected as a lottery pick in 2016, while guys like Derrick Jones, Patrick McCaw and others are also expected to be drafted.

In four seasons under coach Dave Rice, UNLV has gone 89-47 (37-29 MWC) and made two NCAA Tournaments.

At this particular combine, scouts from all 30 NBA teams are expected to be in attendance. Needless to say, it should be a fantastic event.
