A pair of Wildcats will scrimmage in front of dozens of scouts at the NBA Combine in Chicago.
The rosters have been released for the 5-on-5 portion of the combine.
Hamidou Diallo will play for Team Two alongside Kansas’ Devonte Graham, UCLA’s Kris Wilkes and Louisville’s Ray Spalding. P.J. Washington will team up with Kansas’ Malik Newman, Auburn’s Austin Wiley and West Virginia’s Sagaba Konate on Team Three.
Kentucky’s Kevin Knox and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, both projected to be lottery picks, are noticeably absent from the roster, seen below:
The scrimmages will take place after players are tested in a variety of drills. You can catch all of the action on ESPN2 from 3:00-7:00 today and tomorrow.
The fine reporters at ESPN just notified us that even though he’s on the roster, Hamidou Diallo will not participate in the scrimmage portion of the combine. A surprising move, maybe he believes less is more?
