STANFORD, Calif.- Senior Josh Owens is one of 44 players selected to participate in an NBA Draft combine over the weekend at the PNY Center in East Rutherford, N.J.

The event is organized by the Brooklyn Nets, in conjunction with the Houston Rockets.

The workout will feature 44 prospects divided into four group sessions of 11 players, with two sessions taking place on both Saturday and Sunday. The players will be evaluated and put through agility tests similar to the NBA Combine in Chicago, and also will conduct interviews with the media, scouts, agents and team front office representatives.

Forty minutes of the one-hour session will be dedicated to skill-work, while the rest will be devoted to live five-on-five competition.

A two-time all-conference selection, Owens anchored Stanford's frontline last year, ranking third in scoring (11.6 ppg) and first in rebounding (5.8 rpg) while starting all 37 games. Active at both ends of the floor, Owens also led the team in steals (45) and ranked second in blocks (26). Owens surpassed the 1,000-point career mark in a 92-88 overtime win over Illinois State on March 19 and finished with 1,044 to become the 40th player in school history to reach the prestigious scoring mark. Even more impressive, Owens was the 21st player in school history to compile at least 1,000 points and 500 rebounds in his career, ending with 564 total boards.
