The 2018 NBA Draft is about a month away, and the Portland Trail Blazers are surely busy figuring out what prospects they want to bring in for pre-draft workouts. The NBA Combine is an opportunity for every NBA team to get an up-close look at some of the draft’s best prospects. It’s also a chance for lesser-knowns to gain some buzz, like Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma did last year before ending up as a first-round draft pick.

Here’s the major details and participants for this year’s combine:
