Kris Murray, Iowa basketball sophomore, invited to NBA Draft Combine

Iowa men’s basketball player Kris Murray declared for the 2022 NBA Draft in April. His process took another step forward on Tuesday when the sophomore forward received an invitation to the NBA Combine, according to a report from ESPN’s Jonathan Givony.

The Register has been able to confirm the report.

The combine will be held May 16-22 in Chicago. 

Kris Murray joins twin brother Keegan as a combine invitee. Keegan is a projected lottery pick while Kris is going through the draft process but is keeping his college eligibility. 

Kris Murray averaged 9.7 points and 4.3 rebounds while shooting 48% from the field and 38% from three-point range, second-highest on Iowa’s team. He progressed from a seldom-used freshman to a key bench player for Iowa en route to the Hawkeyes’ first Big Ten Tournament championship since 2006. His breakout season led to some NBA Draft buzz.
