Joel Embiid, Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins pull out of NBA Combine

“The top three prospects in the 2014 NBA draft – Joel Embiid and Andrew Wiggins of Kansas, and Duke’s Jabari Parker – will not attend next week’s predraft combine in Chicago, league sources told Yahoo Sports.”

While their involvement in individual drills was likely going to tell the Magic very little, Rob Hennigan and his staff do value the interview process and the quick interviews they get with draft prospects at the Combine. This is their first chance to meet with the best players in the Draft.

That will now have to come at individual workouts which will be scheduled throughout May, likely after the NBA Draft Lottery. Hennigan will likely turn his focus on the Combine to learning more about Australian point guard Dante Exum and looking at potential players to pick with his second lottery pick that will come around No. 12.
