Pre-Draft Winds of Change

NBA.com 2006 NBA Pre-Draft Camp Coverage
By Rob Reheuser - NBA.com
June 10, 2006

"Much of the talk in Orlando this week centered on the future of the NBA Pre-Draft Camp, and whether the camp could survive in today’s climate, which has player agents discouraging borderline first-round prospects from participating in the camp."

"Something will eventually have to give, according to an informal poll of general managers, scouts, camp officials and media members. One possible solution being tossed around is the creation of an NBA combine, much like what the NFL has. Under such a system, all private workouts would be eliminated, creating more of a one-stop shop for talent evaluation."
