Memphis’ Kendric Davis promoted to draft combine from G League Elite Camp


Former Memphis guard Kendric Davis is among the prospects from the G League Elite Camp invited to compete in the draft combine this week, according to Jonathan Givony of ESPN.

Davis will reportedly be joined by Johni Broome (Auburn), Tosan Evbuomwan (Princeton), Jazian Gortman (Overtime Elite), PJ Hall (Clemson), Dillon Jones (Weber State), Sir’Jabari Rice (Texas) and Hunter Tyson (Clemson).

The eight players each emerged as the top performers from the various on-court drills, scrimmages and measurement testing over the two-day event in Chicago, Illinois. They will now join the 78 other prospects announced last week as participants in the combine.

The eight players selected from the G League Elite Camp to compete in the draft combine were each voted on by teams. They will now have the opportunity to perform in front of teams against the top draft prospects this year.

The G League Elite Camp has helped several players advance to the combine and eventually make it to the NBA, including Jose Alvarado, Kenneth Lofton Jr. and Terance Mann.

The NBA draft will take place on June 22.
