Chillin’ Stan Van Gundy wants some notes from today’s session at the NBA Combine

I knew today’s session at the NBA Combine probably couldn’t live up to yesterday’s, but man, it’s been a snooze fest. Regardless, Isaiah Briscoe and Bam Adebayo made the rounds, therefore, I’m here to bring you some notes before signing off for the weekend.

— Briscoe competed in 5-on-5 scrimmages again today and looked good, showing off his skills at point guard after mostly playing off the ball at Kentucky. Afterwards, Briscoe spoke to reporters, and tried to direct the conversation away from Kentucky and towards his future. According to Kyle Tucker, Briscoe said that while he “enjoyed his time at Kentucky,” he’s ready to move on, and has met with one NBA team so far: the Miami Heat. 

While Briscoe seems happy to be getting away from the local media, Kyle did us all a favor and got one more installment of the “One Question with Zay” segment that KSTV’s TJ Beisner and Bradley McKee made famous:

Thank you, and God Bless.

— One takeaway from yesterday’s Combine measurements was Bam Adebayo’s 15 lbs. weight loss from when UK did their own measurements in September. What did Bam attribute that weight loss to?

There you go. It’s that easy…for a 19-year-old kid who’s about to play basketball for a living. Got it.

— A North Carolina native, Bam said he has always dreamed of playing for the Charlotte Hornets:

Bam and MKG? I like it.

— After announcing he’ll sign with an agent and stay in the draft, Duke’s Frank Jackson recorded the second highest vertical jump of the Combine at 42″:

Of course, that’s behind Hamidou Diallo’s 44.5″ from yesterday.

— De’Aaron Fox has yet to make the rounds at the Combine, but according to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, that’s because he was meeting with the Orlando Magic. Yesterday, Fox met with the New York Knicks.

That’s it for me this week. Haley Simpson will have more coverage from the Combine for you throughout the night.

    Why isn’t Frank getting more 1st round hype? I’ve always liked his game and he actually played well at Duke and put up good numbers. 11 points a game (mostly off the bench cause coach K was busy stroking G.Allen ego most of the year) over 50% from 2 and over 40% from 3. I’m starting to think scouts like the unknown better than the known as they want Hami who they have no film on over guys that’s played like Frank, honestly I think Frank is better than Hami and has more experience. Frank can shoot it, Hami can’t. Frank is almost the same kind of athlete, Frank played at Duke and killed the combine 5 on 5. Am I missing something here? I think they prefer players who sit out.

      I didn’t know K could stroke someone’s ego, figured that all went towards himself.
