Next week’s NBA pre-draft camp in Chicago will have a Chicago feel to it.
Four Chicago-area products were among the 54 players invited to the camp, which will be held at ATTACK Athletics in Chicago from May 18-22.
Point guard Demetri McCamey (Illinois, St. Joseph High School), combo guard DeAndre Liggins (Kentucky, Washington), forward Jereme Richmond (Illinois, Waukegan) and point guard Iman Shumpert (Georgia Tech, Oak Park) will participate in the camp.
The players will be measured, put through a variety of drills and be given an official NBA physical during the camp. Teams can also hold private interviews with players.
Mike Dunigan (Oregon, Farragut) and Jacob Pullen (Kansas State, Proviso East) are also potential NBA draft picks. Pullen was not invited to the pre-draft camp. Dunigan is currently playing in Estonia and could not attend the camp because of a scheduling conflict.
ESPN NBA draft analyst Chad Ford has projected for Richmond to be a bubble first-round selection, McCamey and Shumpert to be second-round picks and Dunigan, Liggins and Pullen to go anywhere from the second round to undrafted.
