Lobo Williams also gets NBA combine invite

........................................................................................................................................................................................

Former Lobo guard Kendall Williams told the Journal on Thursday he received an invitation to next week’s NBA Draft Combine in Chicago.

The 6-foot-4-inch guard from California will join former University of New Mexico teammates Alex Kirk and Cameron Bairstow at the event, which features 60 players chosen only after NBA player personnel have expressed interest in the player attending the event. Kirk and Bairstow learned of their invitations to the combine on Saturday.

Williams averaged 16.0 points and 4.9 assists this past season and was the 2013 Mountain West Conference Player of the Year.

A year ago, former Lobo Tony Snell was invited and impressed league executives and general managers and was eventually selected in the first round, No. 20 overall, by the Chicago Bulls.

Snell, Williams, Kirk and Bairstow were all members of the same 2010 recruiting class at UNM.

The draft is June 26.
