NBC Sports Network’s Vin Parise spent the week at the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago and brings us up to date on some of the big news out of the final day.

Highlights of that include Purdue’s Robbie Hummel turning a few heads, Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger not measuring out undersized and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist impressing. General Managers like Kidd-Gilchrist, but like the rest of us who watched Kentucky play this year coaches love him. He defends, he hustles every play. What more do you want?

What you need to remember about the combine: Interviews matter, measurements and drills much less so. Scouts and teams already have a sense of the guys as players, they want to know them as people before they consider investing millions in them.

    OK report for someone who has watched basketball once or twice this year.
    For anyone who has watch much more, this is 2 lost minutes you will never get back. No news whatsoever!
    Mid second round pick is not news. He gets the same contract as a free agent.

    Video of Jerry West was at least nice input from NBA GM-type and former superstar player. No great news but good to hear his idea on the subject of shooting in the current era.
