Report: WVU’s Miles McBride Invited to NBA Draft Combine

The future is still murky for West Virginia point guard Miles “Deuce” McBride as he contemplates turning pro this offseason. The sophomore declared for the NBA draft with the possibility to return to WVU in April and is taking another step in the process, reportedly receiving an invitation to the NBA Draft Combine later this month.

Participating in the combine would not affect McBride’s ability to return to college next season but it would allow him to be scouted any receiving feedback from NBA scouts. As long as McBride does not sign with an agent, he would be able to retain his college eligibility by withdrawing his name from the draft prior to July 7, two weeks before the draft.

McBride led the Mountaineers in scoring this season, averaging 15.9 points in 29 games. He shot 43.1% from the floor and 41.4% from 3-point range while also averaging 3.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists. He was named a Second Team All-Big 12 selection, an honorable mention All-American and to two All-District teams following the season.

McBride was one of four Mountaineers to enter their names into the draft process this offseason, along with forward Derek Culver and guards Taz Sherman and Sean McNeil. Culver decided to sign with an agent and turn pro, Sherman announced last week that he will return to WVU and McNeil, like McBride, has yet to announce a decision.
