Julius Randle to participate in NBA Draft Combine

The National Basketball Association released its 2014 NBA Draft Combine list today and Julius Randle is one of the many participants expected to attend. Fellow top prospects Jabari Parker, Joel Embiid and Andrew Wiggins are notably absent from the list.

The combine will be held Thursday and Friday in Chicago. NBA TV will have live coverage and a pre-combine special Wednesday night.

James Young will also participate as he hopes to climb the board before next month’s draft. Young was spotted sitting courtside at another NBA playoff game over the weekend, this time with rapper “Future,” in case you missed it:

    That dude looks a little too fat, white, and old to be a rapper.

    I wish drafts were like IPOs and you could bet/trade on them. I would short Embiid with everything I could get my hands on. The guy will be a huge bust. I wouldn’t participate in the combine either if I was probably a couple years older than I claim and already have back problems.

    What’s up with Young’s hat? Couldn’t decide which crappy city he wanted to rep? At least he’s from the Detroit area.

      Thanks, I am. So what part of my comment are you disagreeing with or do you not like? That Embiid will be a bust or that Philly & Detroit are crappy cities?

    He looks like a moron. Thought his mamma would teach him to dress a little better than that in public.

    I didn’t even notice James Young in that picture. My first thought is “Where the hell did they see Billy Clyde this time?” The white guy looks just like him.

    I’ll never understand for the life of me why people choose to wear sunglasses indoors. Are your eyes really that sensitive?

    Only reasons to have sunglasses on inside….you just came from the optomotrist and your eyes are dialated, you’re with your significant other and you don’t wnt them to know ur checkn ppl out, you’re high and you don’t want ppl seeing your red shot eyes…..for JY sake lets just hope he thinks it’s cool…

      Yes, when Jodie Meeks walked across the stage at Rupp it officially signified the end of the school year. Many other students were done well before then.

    James Young will be the reason that Cal has to vacate another Final 4. But Cats fans will be just fine with that. Players First, you know. Rap on, James.
