No Montgomery or Richards on official NBA Combine list

We now know the list of the 66 participants in next week’s NBA Draft Combine and it does not include EJ Montgomery or Nick Richards, the two UK players still testing the waters. PJ Washington, Tyler Herro and Keldon Johnson are named, as expected.

There were reports that Montgomery would be in Chicago, but that is not the case. He and Richards should both be leaning toward coming back now.

    If there is a lying on the floor, smiling and clapping event, Grant Williams is going to dominate that one.

    If you can’t get a combine invite you aren’t getting drafted.

    Shocking. Both averaged about 4 points and 4 rebounds per game in very little playing time. Why would anyone think that is close to NBA ready despite their size?

    Why did KSR report Montgomery got a late invite?
    Was that made up!

      I’m a little confused by that too – not sure where that came from. Maybe he got a G-League Elite invitation? Drew, if the cyber attacks abate for awhile can u shed some light on that (you may need a screwdriver:)?
