Former Maryland guard Dez Wells entered the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago a little undersized, a little on the older side, and a little under the radar. At Maryland he was listed 6-foot-5, but measured 6-foot-3 at the combine, and just an inch taller with shoes.
He participated in the 5-on-5 scrimmages, which were played for the first time since 2008. Alongside scrimmage teammates Pat Connaughton, Terry Rozier and former conference rival Terran Petteway, Wells showed that three seasons at Maryland, and 70 wins later, he is ready for the NBA.
Wells, the 84th best prospect according to draftexpress.com, has already worked out with the Celtics, Lakers, Suns and recently played with Louisville guard Rozier, Nebraska forward Petteway, North Carolina forward J.P. Tokoto, Kentucky guard Andrew Harrison and UNLV guard Rashad Vaughn in Indiana with the Pacers, who hold the 11th and 43rd picks. The latter is a possibility for Wells.
The NBA Draft is just three weeks away on June 25th.
