A few more names that won’t be at the combine include Adreian Payne, the big man from Michigan State who has been diagnosed with mono, and Michigan’s Mitch McGary won’t be there due to his back not being 100% yet.
Also, according to Chad Ford, NBA Draft Insider for ESPN, his sources have said that Kentucky’s Julius Randle, Australia’s Dante Exum, Arizona’s Aaron Gordon, Indiana’s Noah Vonleh, Syracuse’s Tyler Ennis, Creighton’s Doug McDermott, and Michigan’s Nik Stauskas are unlikely to participate in drills at the combine.
