One of two pre-draft camps, the PIT has traditionally given off-the-radar players an opportunity to showcase their skills against similar talent. Notable tournament alumni who used the event as a springboard include Kent Bazemore (Old Dominion), Robert Covington (Tennessee State), and JJ Barea (Northeastern).
