The crew at Draft Express is down in Portsmouth, Virginia, for the always-great Portsmouth Invitational Tournament – the last chance for many college seniors to make an impression with NBA scouts before the draft. For a hoophead, the P.I.T. is a great time. There’s nothing but ball all day long for three days straight, with some of the best players in country leaving it on the floor in the hopes that they’ll make an impression on somebody and either get drafted or invited to summer league.

There’s always a little bit of drama every year surrounding who shows up at the P.I.T. and who decides that it’s better to sit it out – the thinking being that a player’s stock can’t go only higher by playing at the P.I.T., it can only go down.

So who’s in and who’s out this year? Check out the Draft Express analysis as well as who killed it on the first day of games (including the guy already being hailed as “the next Mike Dunleavy“)…
