CHICAGO (AP) — 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.
