Quickies: NBA Combine Invites Edition

Kevin Knox gets an NBA Combine invite and more

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Second Round-Buffalo vs Kentucky Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, Kevin Knox is going to be participating in the NBA Draft Combine.

The former Kentucky wing told the Lexington Herald-Leader Sunday that Knox had received an invite. He’s the first Wildcat to receive the invite, but there’s no way he’ll be the last, with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander projected to go ahead of him in the lottery and Hamidou Diallo also expected to be drafted.

Knox’s father said he won’t play in games at the combine but will go through interviews, agility tests and measurements.

Diallo attended the combine last year, where he nearly turned himself into a first round draft pick off physical measurements alone.
