NBA draft prospects Caleb Love and KJ Lewis, who played at Arizona, were invited to the NBA’s G League Elite Camp according to ESPN’s Jonathan Givony. However, Givony reported Monday that Lewis declined his invite, which could point at a possible return to school.

Both players declared for the 2024 NBA Draft while maintaining eligibility to potentially go back to Arizona.

The G League Elite Camp will host athletes to participate separately in five-on-five games and strength and agility drills. The camp will take place from May 11-12 in Chicago.

Although the two Wildcats were not invited to the NBA Draft Combine, Love will have the chance to work out in front of scouts, coaches and front-office executives at the camp.

Out of the 44 invited players, at least six will move on to the NBA Draft Combine, according to Givony.

Love led the Wildcats in scoring for the 2023-24 season, averaging 18 points per game. He also averaged 4.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game. The Pac-12 Player of the Year won the honor in his first season with Arizona after transferring from UNC in 2023.

Lewis, who declined his invite, appeared in all 36 games as a freshman last season. He averaged 6.1 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. His 38 steals tied for ninth-best by a freshman in school history, helping him earn a Pac-12 All-Freshman honorable mention.

He was a four-star Top 100 recruit coming out of high school.

Love will work to earn his combine spot alongside fellow Wildcats Pelle Larsson and Keshad Johnson, who were invited to the combine on Friday.

The 2024 NBA Combine will take place from May 12-19 at Wintrust Arena and the Marriott Marquis in Chicago.

The 2024 NBA Draft tips off June 26 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
