Former Gonzaga foward Johnathan Williams will participate in the Professional Basketball Combine (PBC) on May 22-23 at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.

A complete list hasn’t been released but Williams is apparently one of at least eight players attending the combine. The inaugural PBC in 2017 included four players that signed two-way contracts, 11 signed with NBA G-League teams and eight played professionally overseas, according to the PBC website.

Participants have an opportunity at private workouts, scrimmages, combine testing and interviews with NBA administrators, G-League officials and overseas pro team representatives, the PBC website notes.

The NBA Draft Combine, featuring 69 players, is May 16-20 in Chicago.

Williams, a two-time All-WCC selection, played at the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament last month in Virginia. In three games, Williams averaged 12 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists. He made 40.5 percent from the field and 62.5 percent at the free-throw line.

Williams led the Zags at 13.4 points and 8.5 rebounds last season. He also swatted a team-leading 40 shots. The Memphis native spent the first years of his career at Missouri before transferring to Gonzaga.
