We are just days away from the 2018 NBA Draft Combine, which takes place in Chicago from May 16-20. An invitation to the Combine is a great sign for players, whether a senior or an underclassman. The past month has been a flurry of underclassmen staying in school or declaring for the draft; signing with an agent or not signing with an agent.

Let’s set the scene.

Sixty-nine players have been invited to the Combine and accepted. A few top underclassmen, such as Arizona’s DeAndre Ayton and Texas A&M’s Robert Williams, declined an invitation to come to the Combine. There are only 60 spots in the NBA Draft, taking place on June 21 at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn. You do the math.

Thirty-eight of the 69 attending players are underclassmen who have already signed with an agent. By our current count, 65 total underclassmen have already signed with an agent, meaning that 27 underclassmen who signed with an agent did not get invited. Of the underclassmen in attendance at the Combine who have not signed with an agent, along with all the other underclassmen who have declared but not signed, they will have up to 10 days after the Combine to make a final decision to stay in the Draft or pull out and return to school.

Twelve of the 69 attendees are graduating seniors. This group of seniors is highlighted by Duke’s Grayson Allen and Kansas’ Devonte Graham.

I’m a UNC writer and the ACC Social Media Manager for Armchair All-Americans. I grew up in Atlanta knowing that I was going to be the next Maddux or Glavine. Unfortunately, I never hit six feet tall, 4.4 in the 40-yard dash, 90 m.p.h. on the radar gun, or 50 home runs. So I decided to do my sports from my armchair and behind a computer screen. My favorite all-time sports moment? 1992. NLCS. Game 7. Sid Bream. Look it up. Worst sports moment ever? Two words: Kris. Jenkins. I live in the bustling metropolis of Webb City, MO, where ministry is my full-time job. I spend my free time with my beautiful wife and son.
