Syracuse basketball forward Oshae Brissett earns invite to NBA Combine

Not to be confused with the Irish Brissett.

After competing in the NBA G-League Elite Camp in Chicago on Monday and Tuesday, Syracuse Orange men’s basketball forward Oshae Brissett will be moving on to the 2019 NBA Combine, per DraftExpress. Brissett’s Irish cousin O’shae will not be accompanying him to the combine, however, despite the tweet below.

No apostrophe Oshae made a good impression on NBA personnel in attendance at the G-League Elite Camp earned an invite to the combine. Brissett will remain for the combine which runs this Thursday through Friday. The event will be broadcast on ESPN2/WatchESPN from 3 to 7 p.m. ET.

For those unfamiliar, the G-League camp — in its first year — was a three-day event which pooled both G-League players (on the first two days) as well as college players making the jump to the pros (on the final two days). All 30 NBA teams were expected to have representation at the event in some form.

Brissett had a solid showing in the first day of camp, hitting 15-25 from deep in shooting drills and later scoring 15 points and grabbing 4 rebounds in his first scrimmage.

Brissett was reportedly one of just 10 players from the G-League camp to earn NBA Combine invites. He’ll have until May 29 to decide whether or not to return to Syracuse for his junior season.

Tyus Battle was also at the camp, but did not receive an invite to this year’s combine. Battle did participate in the 2018 combine, however.

Former Syracuse players Andrew White and John Gillon were among the G-League players competing in the event.
