While the NFL combine gets all the hype, the NBA has also started a draft combine as well. The event will run on June 7-8 in Chicago and has 60 participants including Washington’s Terrence Ross and Tony Wroten. The only other player from the Pac-12 invited is Jared Cunningham of OSU. Jorge Gutierrez of Cal did not get an invite.

ESPN’s Chad Ford mentions Ross could be player that gains some steam after the organized NBA workouts that started this past week in New Jersey.

From his blog post …

Ross hasn’t been mentioned in the same rarified air as some of the other elite 2-guard prospects, but several GMs say that’s a big mistake. “That Washington team was pretty dysfunctional this year and I think it hid, at times, what Ross is capable of,” said one GM. “He’s got the size, athletic ability and he can really, really shoot the ball. I think when he gets into workouts with [Jeremy] Lamb, [Dion] Waiters and [Austin] Rivers, he’s going to surprise a lot of people. I’m not sure he’s not the best 2 guard on the board. Take him away from Washington and I think he’s going to be an elite prospect.”
