CHICAGO, IL – Between the on-court activities and mingling of NBA influencers, there’s usually plenty going on during the two days that the league’s annual draft combine shifts to the Quest MultiSport facility on Chicago’s west side.

In an effort to keep you current and up-to-date on what some of this year’s prospects are doing and saying at the combine, we’ll do our best to keep a running tab of noteworthy quotes that emerge from the multiple rounds of media availabilities being held Thursday and Friday.

• UNC swing man Justin Jackson, on improving his perimeter game during a junior campaign that saw him hit 105 3-pointers:

“I think it was really important. That’s the feedback I got last year, you’ve got to shoot more consistently to be able to play at this level. I took that extremely serious. Last year was a translation of all the work I put in in the off-season.”

• UCLA forward T.J. Leaf, on spending his freshman season with classmate Lonzo Ball:

“Me and Lonzo are really close off the court, and on the court. It was a blast with him this year. We’re still very close, we talk all the time. I’m close with him and his family.”
