The NBA draft combine will include nine Pac-12 players, but Dickerson and WSU's Robert Franks did not snag an invitation.
The NBA released the list of players who accepted invitations to its May 16-20 draft combine in Chicago and the four-day scouting event will not include several Pac-12 draft hopefuls.
Washington’s Noah Dickerson and Washington State’s Robert Franks were among the notable snubs from the annual talent evaluation extravaganza that will include nine players from the Pac-12.
Arizona’s DeAndre Ayton, who is vying to be the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, has declined to attend the combine, which tests draft prospects in a variety of drills and team-activities.
Here’s a look at the Pac-12 players going to the combine: UCLA’s Aaron Holiday, Jaylen Hands, Kris Wilkes; Arizona’s Rawle Alkins and Allonzo Trier; USC’s De’Anthony Melton and Chimezie Metu; Oregon’s Troy Brown Jr. and Colorado’s George King.
