CHICAGO — The NBA has picked 11 players from the G League Elite Camp to stay for the NBA draft combine that starts Thursday.
UCF’s Tacko Fall, Florida State’s Terance Mann, Miami’s Dewan Hernandez, Syracuse’s Oshae Brissett, Nevada’s Cody Martin, Tulsa’s DaQuan Jeffries, Auburn’s Jared Harper, Iowa’s Tyler Cook, Iowa State’s Marial Shayok, Mississippi State’s Reggie Perry and Ole Miss’ Terence Davis were invited Wednesday to stay.
They were chosen through a polling of NBA executives who viewed a total of 40 draft-eligible players who took part in the G League camp Monday and Tuesday.
Their additions bring the total number of invitees to the combine to 77. It’s not clear how many will actually participate in on-court drills, testing and games during the event.

Veteran sharpshooter Kyle Korver has agreed to a one-year deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Free agent Kyle Korver has agreed to a one-year deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, agent Jeff Schwartz of @excelsm tells ESPN.

Korver, a 16-year veteran who has played in 135 playoff games, has been one of the most pursued free agents left on the market because of his ability to shoot from behind the arc. In his career, he’s made 42.9 percent of his 3-point shots.
With the Bucks, Korver re-unites with coach Mike Budenholzer. Korver played under Budenholzer for three seasons with the Atlanta Hawks.
Korver, 38, was also considering the Philadelphia 76ers, but the Budenholzer connection may have been the decisive factor, according to Wojnarowski.
