    There's always Sacramento. I note that nbadraft.net (for whatever that may be worth) has him going to Charlotte in the first round, which is so very perfect and predictable it makes me squeak.

Were he to take the "I don't have anything to prove, so I'm not playing at the combine" option, there would likely be many teams who would drop him further down their board than he's already fallen. And probably deservedly so.
    He didn't seem to embrace the competition at Duke. I don't think he'll embrace it at the Combine either.

    I just hope he takes over for Kyrie as "most disliked Duke player in the NBA."

He may get measured and even do some of the athletic drills, but he ain't playing. No potential lottery pick plays at the combine. If his agent tells him to play then he needs to get a new agent.

    The smart money is definitely on Jalen opting out.
