Briscoe gets a golden opportunity to show NBA teams he’s worth drafting.

Isaiah Briscoe has received an invite to the 2017 NBA Draft Combine. He previously declared for the draft and signed with an agent on April 6th.

Briscoe, who just finished his sophomore season with the Kentucky Wildcats, averaged 10.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists during his two-year college career. He’s currently projected as a late second-round selection priority free agent by all of the major draft services.

While it would seem odd a guy projected to go undrafted is so intent on leaving, it's not a surprise with Briscoe. He came to Kentucky last year intent on being a one-and-done player, but a so-so freshman season led to him coming back for a sophomore season in hopes of boosting his stock.

But regardless of what happened, Briscoe was set on leaving after this season and beginning his professional career, even if it wasn't in the NBA. He just wants to focus on basketball and not worry about college life, and he'll get that now.

It’s good news that Briscoe was one of the 60-70 players invited to the combine. That means he has a decent chance of being drafted, and how well he performs at the combine will go a long way in getting him drafted.
