The event gives draft prospects an opportunity to display their skills in front of NBA and NBA G League scouts, coaches and front-office executives over the course of the camp by playing in five-on-five games and participating in strength and agility drills. The top performers from the camp will be invited to the NBA Draft Combine, which will take place May 18-22 in Chicago. Some NBA players who’ve participated in past G League Elite Camps include Pelicans guard Jose Alvarado, Pacers forward Oshae Brissett, Clippers wing Terance Mann and Heat wing Max Strus.
