For Nick Ward to ever play in the NBA, he’ll have to change how the NBA thinks of him. Which, right now, isn’t much at all. The former Michigan State big man wasn’t among the 66 players invited to the NBA Draft Combine next week — a list the NBA revealed Wednesday. Nor was he picked for the 40-player G-League combine, which precedes it. You won’t find Ward’s name in any NBA mock drafts. He isn’t projected to be among the 60 players chosen next month. In other words, the NBA doesn’t have much interest.
