Lamar Stevens Invited To 2020 NBA Combine
Lamar Stevens took another step toward reaching the NBA this week.
The former Penn State men’s basketball star received an invitation to the 2020 NBA Draft Combine. The annual event provides prospects a chance to showcase their talents in front of league scouts.
“I’ve been blessed to be able to play this great game and grateful for the support of so many people, especially my family and coaches,” Lamar Stevens told Penn State Athletics. “With the invitation to participate in the NBA Combine and the experiences I’ve had over the last two summers, I’m going to make the most of the opportunities presented and prove that I can contribute to a team’s success.”
Stevens is among approximately 100 players headed to the combine. Although a date and details for the event aren’t public yet, the combine will likely take place sometime in the fall ahead of the 2020 NBA Draft on Thursday, October 15.
Stevens originally intended on entering the 2019 NBA Draft but returned for his senior season this past year. He powered the Nittany Lions to 21 wins and their first national ranking since 1996.
Additonally, Stevens is one of only two Nittany Lions to post more than 2,000 career points and 800 rebounds. He started all 135 games of his career — a program record total — and totaled 115 double-digit scoring games.
“Lamar has earned this chance to showcase his abilities, and, without question, any team could benefit from Lamar’s work ethic and leadership,” head coach Pat Chambers said. “On the court, in the locker room and in the community, he’s the type of player and person you want representing your organization.”
