The NBA Combine is an event that gives all prospects equal opportunity to showcase their talents under one roof.
There isn't much five-on-five live-game action. Most of the combine consists of drills—shooting, dribbling, fast-breaking, three-on-three halfcourt. There's also athletic testing and physical-measurement sessions on the finals days of the four-day event.
Think about the combine as a first interview. From there, prospects hope to get called in for second interviews by individual teams, where they're asked to work out in a more private and concentrated setting.
The following players will have a lot on the line once the combine gets started. Some have plenty to lose; others have much to gain.
