After not making an appearance at the NBA draft combine Thursday, Henry Ellenson arrived for his media session Friday looking perfectly relaxed.
The former Marquette standout, who opted to enter the draft after a record freshman season, is not participating in any on-court activities at the Quest Multisport Complex. Instead, he’s waiting until after the draft lottery Tuesday to decide which teams he will workout for.
“I’m thinking I’m a top pick,” Ellenson said when asked about his draft range. “They (the NBA teams he has interviewed with) all think that, too. It’s a good position to be in for sure.”
