Brockman gets combine invite

The names of players invited to the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago were released today and among them is UW’s Jon Brockman.
Here is the entire list consisting of 52 players.
But one thing to remember is that this isn’t like the old pre-draft camp that just featured a lot of games. Instead, the combine no longer includes any games and instead is more like the NFL Combine with lots of physical testing and drill work. Here’s a good story explaining the changes.
The change means that almost all of the top players will go making it a little more meaningful to get an invite.
Brockman has been working out in Los Angeles where his agent, Greg Lawrence, is based. Brockman is with the Wasserman Media Group, whose clients also include Brandon Roy, Spencer Hawes and Martell Webster. However, Brockman’s specific agent, Lawrence, has only two clients, according to this list, the other being Maarty Leunen.
Brockman participated in a workout Monday in Reseda, Calif., that also included UCLA’s Jrue Holiday.
Brockman has apparently been doing pretty well in such workouts. Well enough that basketball maven Frank Burlison refers to him as a “likely first-round selection” in this story.
I haven’t seen any mock drafts that have Brockman anywhere above the late second round, however. The latest mock draft from NBADraft.net has him as the last pick of the second round.
PROGRAMMING NOTE — I’m taking one of my mandatory furlough days that all Times employees are scheduled for on Friday (we all have to take a week) so the blog will be silent — at least with any input from me, anyway. I’ll be back by Monday at the latest.
