The NBA Draft Combine will occur on June 7 and 8 in Chicago. Dozens of potential NBA players will descend upon the city as they attempt to impress NBA scouts. Three local college basketball players will be participating in the Combine. Hollis Thompson and Henry Sims of the Georgetown Hoyas will both be participating, as will Mike Scott from the Virginia Cavaliers.
Thompson, the junior forward, averaged 12.7 points and 5.6 rebounds per game last season. Sims, the senior center, averaged 11.7 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. Both players helped Georgetown reach the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament before losing in the round of 32 to North Carolina State.
Scott, the senior forward, averaged 18.1 points per game and 8.4 rebounds per game as he helped lead the Cavaliers to their first NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament since 2007.
