The NBA is scheduled to hold the G League Elite Camp from June 19 to June 21 at the same location as the 2021 draft combine, according to Shams Charania.
The event, which was canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, had five participants drafted in 2019 including Cody Martin, Charlotte Hornets; Terance Mann, Los Angeles Clippers; Justin Wright-Foreman, Utah Jazz; Reggie Perry, Brooklyn Nets and Dewan Hernandez, Toronto Raptors.
Several other draft-eligible players in the 2019 camp also made it to the NBA after going undrafted, including Oshae Brissett (Raptors), Chris Clemons (Houston Rockets), Tyler Cook (Cleveland Cavaliers, Denver Nuggets, Nets, Detroit Pistons), Tacko Fall (Boston Celtics), DaQuan Jeffries (Sacramento Kings, Rockets), Caleb Martin (Hornets), Justin Robinson (Washington Wizards, Oklahoma City Thunder) and Max Strus (Miami Heat).
The camp typically includes about 40 NBA G League invitees participating in the first half of the event before 40 top draft-eligible players (who weren’t invited to the combine) participate in the second half.
It’s currently unclear if the same rules will apply this year.
The draft combine is set to take place after the G League Elite Camp, from June 21 to June 27.
The league previously noted that the combine will be subject to “evolving health conditions” and that will apply to all the upcoming events this summer as well.
