NBA Considering Holding a Virtual Version of the Draft Combine

Although the NBA has already postponed the Draft Lottery and Draft Combine, the league continues to look for ways to maintain some level of order in the upcoming 2020 NBA Draft.

With the idea that the Draft may be moved all the way to late Summer or early Fall, the league is looking into the possibility of holding a virtual draft combine, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic. Per report, the NBA has sent each of the 30 teams ballots to vote on which players they wish to see in a virtual combine.

Both the Lottery and Combine were slated to take place in May, but have subsequently been postponed due to the ongoing global pandemic. At this time, the Draft is set to take place on June 25, but it is expected to be postponed as well.

The combine has become a staple of the NBA’s pre-draft process. It is an opportunity for teams to collect physical metrics, assess a prospect’s athleticism, and collect more information on the upcoming class of rookies. In April, the NBA prohibited teams from requesting virtual workouts from prospects. That being said, remote interviews remain permitted.

The NBA will continue to look for new ways for teams to have more control over evaluating some of the game’s best prospects.
