The annual fiesta that is the NBA Draft Combine is currently underway in Chicago, as numerous potential NBA prospects try to impress NBA GMs and skyrocket up Draft boards. As many potential lottery picks have again chosen to sit out various workouts at the Combine to instead hold private workouts with individual teams in the upcoming weeks, it has opened the door for other players who are competing for a chance to be drafted to shine. One such player who has is Georgetown's own Hollis Thompson.

Hoops World Interview with Hollis after The Jump:

Thompson, whose draft stock has wavered from being a projected late 2nd round pick to not being drafted at all, could sneak into the 2nd round if he continues to impress. Thompson recently spoke with Hoops World about his abilities and what he can bring to an NBA team.

Fellow Hoya Henry Sims, who has appeared to solidify himself as a 2nd round selection, also participated in today's workouts. We'll have more on what scouts and GMs in attendance thought of him later today.

Or maybe we won't.
