2015 Portsmouth Invitational Tournament: Official Rosters and Preview

2015 Portsmouth Invitational Tournament: Official Rosters and Preview

The players participating at the 2015 Portsmouth Invitational Tournament (April 8-11, official site) were announced today.

This is a particularly tough year for the PIT, which elected to hold their tournament the same week as the Nike Hoop Summit. That is expected to hurt the attendance numbers of top-level NBA decision makers, even if many scouts will still be present as always. Portsmouth was held a week later last year, and not as close to the NCAA Final Four, which is not ideal for some athletes from schools which were only recently eliminated from the NCAA Tournament.

The fact that there will once again be five on five competition games played at the NBA Combine in Chicago also may have prevented some seniors from attending Portsmouth as well, as some may feel like they are better suited waiting to play there rather than risking a poor performance against lesser rated prospects at the PIT. For some, that gamble won't pay off, though, as there are only so many spots at the NBA Combine, certainly as far as NCAA seniors are concerned.
