With the NBA Draft Combine coming to an end where does Charles Bassey Stand?
According to Ben Standig of NBC Sports Washington Bassey improved his stock on day 1.
Charles weighs in on the NBA Draft process.
Other articles I’ve read have Bassey slipping due to his measurement of only 6’8. As of right now I believe Charles is still in the second round pick category with individual team workouts coming in the following days.
Sorry for the lack of post the past week, wedding priorities have got in the way.
Over the weekend the NBA combine sent out their invites to the Top 60 prospects. These prospects are not finalized yet, but it appears Western Kentucky’s Charles Bassey was not invited. Here’s the list as leaked by NBA Draft God on Twitter-
Obviously this list is not finalized yet due to some invitees may not participate in the combine (i.e. Ja Morant). Charles Bassey could be listed as an alternate. For those who are wanting to see Charles return for a second season on the Hill this is a step in that direction.
The NCAA voted to change the rules to allow players to be represented by NCAA-certified agents after the season as long as they request an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee (UAC). Agents will be allowed to pay for meals, transportation, and lodging for players and their families during the agent selection process and meetings with teams; however, players must “end” that relationship if they decide to return to school.
Written feedback received by players
Players who request an evaluation from the UAC will receive written feedback throughout the process, including where NBA executives believe they will be drafted, if at all. Here are the five categories they will receive:
Drafted in the Lottery (i.e., pick Nos. 1-14)
Drafted in the First Round but outside the Lottery (i.e., pick Nos. 15-30)
Drafted in the first half of the Second Round; (i.e., pick Nos. 31-45)
Drafted in the second half of the Second Round (i.e., pick Nos. 46-60) or
The feedback will start rolling in to players and their coaches around April 1 and continue through the early-entry deadline of April 21. Players who decide to stay in the draft through the Combine will continue to receive feedback through May 29, the NCAA’s deadline to withdraw from the draft.
G-League Elite Camp
A new extension in the evaluation processis the G-League Elite Camp, a three-day scouting event in Chicago for the top 40 prospects NOT invited to the Combine. The top performers from the G-League Elite Camp will also be invited to the Combine.
A Rule That Has Not Changed Yet. (Hopefully soon)
Undrafted players returning to school
The NCAA proposed allowing undrafted underclassmen to return to school as long as they requested an evaluation from the UAC and participated in the Combine. The rule change is a great idea, but for now, it’s still not approved.
