    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    The National Basketball Association announced today that 67 players are expected to attend the 2017 NBA Draft Combine powered by Under Armour. This marks the first year Under Armour will serve as the event’s title partner.

    Four players apiece from national champion North Carolina, Kentucky and Oregon will attend, along with three apiece from Arizona, Duke and UCLA.

    Projected No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz of Washington is also expected to attend, even though several other lottery picks — including Lonzo Ball, Josh Jackson, Malik Monk, Jayson Tatum and Lauri Markkanenare skipping the combine.

    The NBA Draft Combine is the first step in the Draft process for NBA hopefuls and features five-on-five games as well as strength and agility drills at Chicago’s Quest Multisport on Thursday, May 11 and Friday, May 12.
