Former Missouri basketball players Marcus Denmon and Kim English both got started at the NBA Draft Combine on Thursday in Chicago.
According to nbadraft.net, English impressed some people with his shooting ability in the first day of the two-day combine. English was a good jump shooter for the Tigers, especially in his senior season when he shot over 50 percent from the field.
According to the Jonathan Wasserman: “Kim English had a moment that you could see translating: Playing the wing on the 3 on 2, 2 on 1 drill, he occupied the corner which spread the floor, knocked down a three-ball off the drive and dish, got back and disrupted the 2 on 1 the other way. He shot well throughout the day in shooting drills. Looks automatic when open, spotting up.”
Denmon didn’t make it into Wasserman’s notes on Thursday, but did tweet when he got home: “good day of drills and workouts, gotta keep working.”
