NBA teams on Saturday reportedly submitted votes for the prospects they wish to see at the draft combine and G League Elite Camp, according to Jonathan Givony of ESPN.
The NBA announced in March that the combine will return to Chicago and take place June 21-27. In addition to the combine, the league will also host the G League Elite Camp from June 19-21. The top players from the Elite Camp will earn invitations to the combine.
The league is expected to host around 100 players between the two events as it will also feature perhaps more international prospects than in past seasons. The invitations will soon be sent out to those players selected to participate this year.
Every NBA team submitted votes for 70 players for the NBA Combine and G League Elite Camp today. Around 100 players will be invited after the tally count to participate in one of the two camps. With the Combine dates pushed back a month, expect quite a few int’l players to attend

The NBA draft is scheduled to take place on July 29.
