Per Ben Steele, Justin will be talking to the media Friday. Guessing that will be the announcement as to his future.

Any word on what time he’ll talk to the media?

There's always hope. Trayce Jackson Davis announced he is returning to IU. Of course he has NIL's for Pennzoil, Merchant Bank of Indiana, and the IU Collective for good.

No he wasn't. I would go so far as to say he was the worst shooter on the team - including walk-ons. Being able to dunk when you are 6'10" does not make you a good shooter.

Jackson-Davis scored mostly on contested post-ups. BTW, he also rebounded - something else Kur couldn't do.

This clearly means that Justin has decided to play pro football.

I am glad that Justin did not participate in the Combine games. There is only downside, if Justin is already held in good regard by the NBA teams with interest. 

 For example, Colin Gillespie went 3-19 shooting over the course of his two games. That did not help his cause.

Gillespie also doesn’t have the option of returning to school.

The Athletic had some Combine observations that included mentions of Lewis, as well as a few other tidbits ...

A maddening issue has been players’ unwillingness to participate in the five-on-five portion of the combine, even if they probably should to improve their draft stock. In a way, this mechanism could end up being self-correcting. Several players moved up teams’ boards in 2021 partly as a result of playing in Chicago, including a few who vaulted into the first round (notably 12th pick Joshua Primo, 24th pick Josh Christopher and 25th pick Quentin Grimes).

With this year’s solid play of Santa Clara’s Jalen Williams and some others foreboding the same, one wonders if agents will stop overplaying their hands. Several players who either stood pretty firmly in second-round territory (Marquette’s Justin Lewis, Duke’s Wendell Moore) or had little to lose by playing five-on-five (G League Ignite’s Jaden Hardy, Milwaukee’s Patrick Baldwin, Michigan State’s Max Christie) nonetheless sat out that portion


In a section of the article subtitled "Measurement Guys" ...

A couple of other perimeter players with great length/enormous hand combinations: Justin Lewis at Marquette was 6-foot-7 1/2 with a 7-foot-2 1/2 wingspan, along with 10 1/2-inch hands. NBA teams already had Leonard Miller’s measurements from Nike Hoop Summit, but he also came in again at 6-foot-10 with a 7-foot-2 wingspan and 10 1/2-inch hands. Guys with these kinds of frames and perimeter-style games tend to figure it out at the NBA level at some point in their trajectory. Think O.G. Anunoby, Jerami Grant, Christian Wood, Pascal Siakam and others. These guys all went outside of the top 20, but made it work at the next level. Don’t be surprised if the Barlows, Lewises and Millers of the world end up being the next ones to do so.

Also in that section:

Wisconsin guard Johnny Davis did himself some good by coming in at more than 6-foot-4 without shoes, when some teams had some very real concerns that he’d be about that height with shoes. At 6-foot-5 3/4 in shoes with an 8-foot-7 1/2 standing reach, Davis looks well-suited to playing either wing position now as opposed to coming in with measurements that would leave him position-locked as a two.


A few other odds 'n ends some Scoopers might be interested in ...

+ A feeling emerged that Orlando will draft Chet Holmgren first overall.

+ A lot of trading is expected to take place on or shortly before draft night.

+ Santa Clara wing Jalen Williams was chosen as the "big winner" of the Combine. "At this point, we expect he ends up being picked near the top-20 on draft night."

+ Kofi Cockburn and Drew Timme were among those labeled "5-on-5 standouts" who helped their draft stock. Of Timme: "He opened some eyes by making four 3-pointers on the second day of scrimmages — he was 5-of-8 overall — and also had a legendary protest of a traveling call against him. Timme measured 6-9 in shoes and will need to play the four at the next level. He showed enough skill to potentially pull it off."

+ Meanwhile, at the G League Elite Camp, Jared Rhoden and Connecticut got solid reviews, with The Athletic saying: "A pair of tough, physical wings from the Big East who parlayed great outings at the Portsmouth Invitational into strong G League camps and combine invites. Both defended well and attacked the basket, using mature frames to overpower some of the younger guys at both events. Rhoden is slightly more interesting to a wider swath of NBA teams due to his elite length, but both should expect to end up as two-way contract players. Each of them has really helped themselves throughout the pre-draft process."

"We understand that for some reason, to people with money, to people who fund political campaigns, guns are more important than children. Today we stand for Lexi, and as her voice, we demand action."

-- Kimberly Rubio, whose daughter Lexi was among 19 schoolchildren slaughtered in Uvalde, Texas

This is what stood out most to me, mainly because if Justin is seen as a second round pick (which is the current consensus) then a second round guarantee might not be worth much as the team currently guaranteeing they'd take him if he's there may not have the pick to take him when it comes up anyway.

True. But maybe he is hearing from several teams that they will take him if he's there at pick number whatever.

Or maybe not. I don't claim to know. Just going into what could help shape his decision.

I think Justin will do well in the interviews with the GM. He has handled himself well at MU.

Media is a big part of the whole experience.

I suspect Justin's camp is hearing from multiple teams that he'll go somewhere in the early second round, so he has nothing to gain from playing or speaking.  Even the top guys avoid media availability. 

His measurables (6'7.5" height, 7'2.5" wingspan, 10.5" hands) could be the biggest thing for him coming out of this combine.  That length is such an outlier.
