A list of college basketball players set to participate in the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago later this month was posted to Twitter by ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.

That’s quite the list and includes a great number of players, namely LSU sensation Ben Simmons and Duke wing Brandon Ingram, either of whom could go No. 1 overall. What differs from the NBA Draft Combine this year is that players will have the option of returning to school afterward, something that was not an option in years past.
This time around, players will have until 10 days after the combine to opt out and thus have an understanding of the process, plus what they need to work on prior to next season. Moreover, with a draft class as deep as this year’s, fans should expect the unexpected and get excited for what June’s NBA Draft may hold!
