    Kai Sotto not on NBA Draft Combine list of 76 hopefuls

    Leading the list are potential lottery picks Jabari Smith of Auburn, Paolo Banchero of Duke, and Chet Holmgren of Gonzaga.

    Some of the big names will likely skip the two-day event, but the highly rated hopefuls are still expected to be around.


      Despite missing the Draft Combine, Sotto is slated to engage in workouts with at least a dozen of NBA teams, according to his handlers East West Private.
