Players are under no obligation to appear at the NBA Combine, which begins May 9 and ends on May 14. Many top players over the years have decided to skip the combine so it's no surprise Ball and others are expected to do the same.
Ball averaged 14.7 points and an NCAA-best 7.6 assists in his freshman season with the UCLA Bruins.
