Pitt's Ashton Gibbs Participating In New Jersey Nets' NBA Draft Combine

Last week it was the Los Angeles Lakers giving Ashton Gibbs a look. Next up for the former Pitt guard? The New Jersey Nets.

Gibbs will be participating in the Nets' NBA Draft Combine this weekend. The team will host four groups of players over Saturday and Sunday mornings spaced about an hour and a half apart, so they're not terribly long workouts. Further, each group has 11 players so the Nets aren't getting a great look at any of these guys.

Other players in Gibbs' group include fellow Big East guard Darius Johnson-Odom from Marquette and Penn's Zack Rosen. Additional Big East players in other groups are Marquette's Jae Crowder, Syracuse's Kris Joseph, and Villanova's Maalik Wayns.

The Nets are pretty deep at guard and have lots of younger options, so I don't know that Gibbs fits in there as well as he might with a team like the Lakers in need of a sniper or two. But if he impresses enough at the combine, maybe he'll get called back for an individual workout.
