After considering a proposal from its competition committee, the NBA will bring back 5-on-5 competition for next year’s draft combine, league sources told ESPN.com.
General managers and scouts have been complaining for years that the lack of competition between prospects at the annual draft showcase lessens the scouting value of the combine. Since 2009, the NBA has had the 60 or so prospects invited to the combine run through various shooting and ballhandling drills with some minor simulated 3-on-2 action.
