Kerry Blackshear Jr. of NCAA transfer portal fame is still feeling out his NBA potential before making a final decision about his future.

On Thursday, Blackshear Jr. was named one of 24 players expected to participate in something called the Professional Basketball Combine. The evaluation event will take place May 21-22 at the Mamba Sports Academy, owned by one Kobe Bryant, in Thousand Oaks, California. Other notable participants include Chris Silva (South Carolina), Kenny Williams (North Carolina), KeVaughn Allen (Florida) and Quentin Gooden (Xavier by way of Taylor County).

With Blackshear Jr. set to participate in the secondary combine, we know it will be at least another week before he decides anything.

The former Virginia Tech star is not among the 100 NBA prospects on ESPN’s big board.

    Blackshear Jr has his own version of ‘shtank face’.

    Meanwhile, Kobe, who’s favorite move is the backdoor, he is going to get a cut while they pan for gold.
