To assist us in communicating with athletes invited to attend the 2021 NBA Draft Combine, the NBA has created an exclusive version of the Smartabase Athlete app called Combine HQ. This mobile app will enable you to:
- Complete your pre-combine registration.
- View your 2021 Draft Combine testing and interview schedule when available.
- Access your 2021 Draft Combine results when available.
- Get notifications and messages from the NBA.
To create the app, the NBA partnered with technology provider Smartabase, who will be collecting the NBA Draft Combine results in one platform to ensure it is easily accessible for both athletes and teams.
Please enable notifications in the app to ensure you receive all communications from the NBA.
