    [April 8]The Portsmouth Invitational ended Saturday along with the NBA dreams of many college seniors. While the Tournament had more talent than in years past, scouts and league executives identified only a handful of players who have a shot of getting drafted in the second round.

    Only a few of the top players at the PIT will actually get an invite to the NBA Pre-Draft Camp in Chicago. Most of the top seniors who skipped the PIT will play in Chicago. So will many of the bubble underclassmen and foreign players, leaving anywhere from 10-15 slots for PIT players. In the next month, each team will send the NBA a list of the 60 players it would like to see at the camp. The NBA tabulates the results and players with the most votes get an invitation.
