Caleb Houstan to skip NBA Draft Combine, Moussa Diabate will participate

Moussa Diabate will participate in the NBA Draft Combine as expected while Caleb Houstan turned down an invitation and will skip the event.

Houstan is one of two players to earn an invite to the Combine but reject the invitation. The move has led to speculation by notable NBA reporters that Houstan has some sort of draft promise on the table.

Diabate should have a great opportunity to improve his stock at the event with his physical testing.

The NBA Draft Combine runs from May 16th through 22nd in Chicago and players testing the waters will have until June 1st to decide to return to school.

Michigan senior Eli Brooks was invited to the G-League Elite Camp which takes place immediately before the combine and gives players a chance to earn a spot.

    Pipe Dream: Eli absolutely shows out (including showing off his supposed great vertical) at the G-League camp and gets an invite to the NBA combine

    Fwiw since I’ve seen it pop up. Caleb is repped by Jason Glushon (clients). He’s a fairly significant agent with several big name guys (and familiar names).

    Moussa is with Verus.

    Would you say that is a bad sign for the potential of Caleb returning for his sophomore season?

    I don’t really see the logic in skipping the Combine if you plan to stay in the draft. Yeah, one team could promise to pick you, but that’s putting your eggs in one basket.
