  • Nets to Host NBA Draft Combine

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    The Nets, in conjunction with the Houston Rockets and the Knicks, will host a draft combine at which 44 NBA draft- eligible players will showcase their skills in front of coaches and personnel executives from 26 NBA teams.  Players will be measured and skill tested and participate in five-on-five competition.

    Workouts will take place on Saturday and Sunday at the Nets facility in East Rutherford, N.J.

    Underclassmen can withdraw from the draft by Sunday and return to campus if they don’t hire an agent, so some of these players will have to make a relatively quick determination on their futures.
