In a whirlwind journey from the courts of San Diego to the elite stage of the 2024 NBA Draft Combine, Filipino-American basketball sensation Boogie Ellis continues to turn heads. The recent invitation to the NBA Draft Combine marks another milestone in Ellis' remarkable career, underscoring his talent, determination, and promise of a bright future ahead.

Ellis's path to the Combine started with his standout performance at the G League Elite Camp, where he notched a camp-high 23 points in just 22 minutes on 12 shots during his initial game, securing an invite. Ellis also added 4 rebounds and 4 assists, exhibiting glimpses of defensive proficiency and adept passing.

Ellis was one of over 120 NBA prospects gathered at Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Illinois—the host venue for the NBA Draft Combine, held from May 12th through May 19th. The showcase includes medical examinations, measurements, interviews, diverse athletic tests, and shooting drills, along with full-court scrimmages, all observed closely by NBA coaches, general managers, and scouts.

Standing at 6 feet and 3 inches tall with a wingspan of 6 feet and 7 inches, Ellis showcased his speed, agility, and a knack for scoring from the mid-range and beyond the arch. It's reminiscent of his college career at the University of Southern California, where he boasted an average of 16.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1.4 steals per game on shooting splits of .427/.418/.720. Apart from being a two-time All-Pac-12 awardee, he was also named AAC Co-Sixth Man of the Year in 2021 with the University of Memphis.

As the NBA Draft Combine continues, all eyes are set on Fil-Am sensation. Equipped with talent, determination, unwavering drive, and a proven track record of success at the collegiate level, Boogie Ellis is prepared to seize the opportunity and elevate his game in pursuit of his NBA dreams.
