C.J. Leslie Will Sit at NBA Draft Combine
North Carolina State forward C.J. Leslie, a fast-rising prospect among several teams, has a minor sprained shooting hand and will sit out the drills portion of the NBA draft combine in Chicago this week, sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Leslie, who left the Wolfpack after his junior year, is a long, talented 6-foot-9 forward with great athletic ability who has several NBA front offices eager to get a closer inspection of him.
Leslie’s agent, Aaron Mintz of CAA, informed the NBA on Tuesday of the decision to sit out the basketball drills portion of the combine, league sources said. Leslie will participate in some athletic testing and interviews with team executives. Leslie’s right hand is expected to be fully healed to work out individually for teams in the near future.
