BIG3 Draft Combine Sights and Sounds

Las Vegas, NV – With the third season of the wildly successful BIG 3 basketball league ready to kick off in just a few weeks, the recently expanded league held an exclusive invite-only Scouting Combine in Las Vegas ahead of the 2019 Draft. In a strong indication of the growing appeal of the 3-on-3 league, there were well over 130 players that showed up, looking to show out and garner enough attention to warrant being selected by one of the league’s twelve teams.

Vegas Sports Daily was on hand and caught up with a number of notable coaches, big-name marquee players looking to earn a spot, and even a few Hall of Fame players turned front-office executives, starting right at the top with BIG3 league founder, Ice Cube.
