    The elite camp is made up mostly of guys that played in the G league, it gives a pretty good idea of where he stands, these are guys that are trying to get into the NBA that have played professionally, very high level of competition. The combine are early entry guys, just graduated, or foreign guys entering the draft.

    I didn't think playing in the elite camp had anything to do with the combine,it was my understanding that participants in the combine were selected before the elite camp happened.

    That he has not received a NBA draft combine invite. NBA draft combine invites is for those that are expected to be drafted.

    per the link:

    “He’s definitely good enough to play in the G League next year,” Fraschilla said of Coffey. “I think he’s potentially a guy who could get a two-way contract or be a second-round pick and get a guaranteed deal. All those things are on the table for him.”

    Go Gophers!!

    I'd think he'd really need to blow the doors off the gym to receive an invite to the combine that starts the same day that the G League camp ends.

    Yes, out of the 40 invited to the G league elite camp about 5-10 will be added to the 60 already invited to the combine. He has not grabbed a top 60 spot yet.

    I am curious what would be enough for Amir, I feel like even if he's good enough to get a two way deal, he will spend most of the year if not all of it in the G League. I feel like that option would still be there next year, so he might as well comeback and try to improve his stock. I personally think guys like Tony Carr or Kobe Saunders who stayed in got bad advise and could have not only helped their teams but themselves by coming back another year. DeAndre Hunter UVA a good example of that, same with Forgive Deng a few years back at Louisville

    Yes, and Hunter would have gone between 26-32. That was the feedback from Golden State and Boston Celtics GM's. Now he will go top 6 and with the NCAA title he craved. Much will depend on who Amir listens to. Alot of kids listen to scouts or reps that want business. Presumably the Coffey family is listening to the best people out there. There is little in the way of knowing how much a kid loves the whole college experience. Hunter loved the whole experience and is 6 credits short right now but he was so close to his teammates and they wanted to finish with the championship they promised when they came in together. I am hoping Coffey see's value in coming back to win the conference, finishing school. He is a ferocious competitor. I have been 80% sure he was coming back.

    Sounds like it is coming down to does he want to start making money now in the G league or oversea's or stay in college, get a degree, and see if he can get drafted next year.

    The NBA G League players will attend the first two days of the NBA G League Elite Camp and the 2019 NBA Draft prospects will participate in the second and third days, without overlap between the two groups of athletes.


    A select number of players from the draft-eligible group will be invited to participate in the 2019 NBA Draft Combine based on their performance in the NBA G League Elite Camp.

    The draft-eligible participants for the NBA G League Elite Camp and the invitees to the NBA Draft Combine will both be determined by an NBA team vote. Once the NBA Draft Combine participants are finalized, the top remaining 40 vote-getters will be invited to the last two days of the Elite Camp.

    ____________

    So the the Top 60 get the NBA Draft combine invite, another 40 get invited to the G-Leauge Camp.

    Jordan Murphy, Ethan Happ, Yoeli Childs, and Charles Bassey?

    Also regarding two way deals, all players in their 4th year in the league and younger are eligible for two way deals. So Amir wouldn't just be competing with his current draft class, he'd be competing with the last 3 draft classes as well. And guys that have never played in the NBA and played in Europe would all be considered first year guys as well that Amir would have to compete with. And players can be one two way deals for two seasons so Amir would be competing with all the guys last year that got two way deals. Plus the guys that got drafted this year.

    Look at Rashad Vaughn... it's not easy to make an NBA roster.

    Only the Gophers would have the luck to have their best player leave a year early to play in the G league.

    Does this happen often? Im not real familiar with the whole process. I would imagine people think they will get drafted and they dont and they go to GLeague, but do guys elect to play in G League knowing they wont get drafted?
