The NBA announced Wednesday that a total of 66 players were expected to attend the 2019 NBA Draft Combine powered by Under Armour.

The Draft Combine takes place in Chicago from Thursday, May 16 and Friday, May 17 from 3-7 p.m. ET. Those who participate will be put through shooting drills, strength and conditioning tests, agility drills and will also play five-on-five games in front of NBA front office executives and scouts.

Duke's Zion Willamson and Murray State's Ja Morant headline the list of potential attendees in Chicago.

Seven of the 66 Draft Combine invitees are Canadian headlined by potential top three pick RJ Barrett (Duke). Nickeil Alexander-Walker (Virginia Tech), Brandon Clarke (Gonzaga), Ignas Brazdeikis (Michigan), Lugentz Dort (Arizona State), Mifondu Kabengele (Florida State) and Simi Shittu (Vanderbilt) join Barrett as combine invitees from the north.

A handful of draft-eligible players will also be invited to participate in the 2019 NBA Draft Combine based on how they perform at the NBA G League Elite Camp which is set for May 12-14.
