Draft Notes: C. White, Barrett, Culver, G. Williams

A number of draft-eligible prospects who attended this week’s combine decided against participating in today’s scrimmages, with at least one prospect leaving the event altogether.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski first reported (via Twitter) that Jalen Lecque, who performed well during Thursday’s scrimmages, decided not to play anymore based on feedback to his family. Croatian forward Luka Samanic followed suit, as did Charles Bassey (Western Kentucky), Moses Brown (UCLA), and DaQuan Jeffries (Tulsa), according to Jeremy Woo of SI.com (via Twitter), who adds that Brown is believed to have suffered an injury on Thursday.

Meanwhile, projected lottery pick Coby White (UNC) left the combine on Friday after interviewing with several teams, sources tell Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link). White’s departure will likely fuel speculation of a draft promise, and while it’s a possibility, there have been no reports yet suggesting that’s the case.

  1. x%sure

    PG is the area of shortage in the 2019 class, and teams that want one are drafting high, so promises to White and Garland are not surprising.

    Culver may end up at the 1 also if taken by MOST of the teams drafting early, in his range. People call Culver a wing or a 3&D but they are sleeping on his longterm PG potential. At least, I think whoever gets him will want him bringing the ball upcourt.

  2. Barrett is getting drafted by the Knicks at #3, but, either way, he may end up on the Pels before summer league.
