The NBA released their list of the 69 players invited to the 2018 NBA Draft Combine. The list contained just 9 players from the Pac-12 conference, notably omitting two-time First Team PF Reid Travis.
The NBA Draft consists of 60 player selections, the vast majority of which tend to be from the pool of combine participants. Each year, a handful of players who are not invited still hear their names called, and several more find their ways onto rosters as undrafted free agents.
Reid has until May 30th to decide whether to keep his name in the draft. The big man still has a fifth year of NCAA eligibility remaining due to past injury issues. Stanford has a spot for Travis on their roster, and could be a formidable squad with him manning the interior for one final year. There are reports of schools pursuing him as a grad transfer, perhaps even including Kentucky, though Reid has not given any indication he is looking to transfer.
Other notable PAC-12 omissions include OSU’s Drew Eubanks and WSU’s Robert Franks. Both of those players have hired agents and cannot return to school.
