The NBA has released the full list of college players who will participate in the upcoming draft combine.

Not among the players who will be attending is possible No. 1 pick Ben Simmons of LSU. Simmons declining the invitation to the combine does not come as a complete surprise, as top players have had a habit of skipping the combine in recent years.

The other big name player who will pass on the combine in Washington’s Dejounte Murray, who was named Pac-12 All-Conference second team after averaging 16.1 points and 6.0 rebounds as a freshman. 

The combine will be held from May 11–15.
