    Clyburn headed to NBA Combine?

    https://twitter.com/nate_oats/status/332875522105282562

    Certainly couldn't hurt his chances of getting drafted.

    Re: Clyburn headed to NBA Combine?

    Certainly will help Will Clyburn. I'd like to see a guy like Chris Babb get a shot. Defensive specialist with a good job shot, extremely athletic and built like a truck (6'6 about 230) could be a valuable bench player for a team.

    I think Babb and Clyburn get a shot, what hurts Babb is his ankle injury. If Tyrus McGee was two inches taller I think a team would pick him up too.

    Regardless, its great seeing cyclones in the NBA. I have a feeling Hoiberg will be sending a lot of guys to the NBA before he's done coaching here.

    Re: Clyburn headed to NBA Combine?

    Will has the skill set to impress at an event like this. His only question marks are on defense and physical strength, IMO. Both of those are things that can be improved with time/effort, at this point getting drafted may be a stretch but a good showing here could get him noticed. Drafted or not, theres no way he isn't in an NBA camp next fall. He'll get a shot.

    From Chad Ford

    Chad Ford ‏@chadfordinsider2m
    Talked to the NBA yesterday about how they come up with NBA Draft Combine participants ...

    Chad Ford ‏@chadfordinsider3m
    NBA provides all 30 teams with a ballot of a few hundred draft-eligible players. Each team votes for 60 players & NBA tallies the votes.

    Chad Ford ‏@chadfordinsider3m
    The NBA invites the players receiving the most votes from teams with an eye toward arriving at (or near) 60 total participants.

    Chad Ford ‏@chadfordinsider3m
    In this case, the NBA got additional feedback from teams after the list was released and added Blue, Clyburn & Covington

    Good to see that teams pulled for Clyburn. He's given a chance to prove his value.

    "Clyburn headed to NBA Combine?" If you have proof he is headed to the combine, its not a question, right? Or were you just doing this...



    Either way, congratulations to Will Clyburn as he has transitioned from a high school prospect with zero high-level scholarship offers to a NBA combine invitee. Job well done!

    No one person can hope to contain him. He is unstoppable. He is fluid. Will the Thrill is busting loose.

    Ha. Well just seeing some random guy tweeting about it isn't the most reliable source. I was waiting for a tweet like this:

    https://twitter.com/cyclonembb/statu...07374182555648

    to make sure this was actually happening.

    Re: Clyburn headed to NBA Combine?

    Clyburn did a hell of a job on Deshaun Thomas in the 2nd half. It's all about effort and intensity with Will. I doubted his NBA potential early, and I still think it is a long shot, but he turned his game up in the postseason.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    Re: Clyburn headed to NBA Combine?

    I think he's good enough to get drafted, but like dg, he could slip out of because of teams getting foreign talent and sending them back over for a year.

    ive seen clyburn around the bottom 5 picks in most mocks

    He'll land somewhere, drafted or not. He has the size, athleticism and skills to play at that level.
