He was not invited to the NBA Combine and elected to pull his name out of draft consideration. Last year, Nkamhoua averaged 10.8 points and shot 51.3% from the floor and 33% from behind the arc. He is best remembered for his performance against Duke in the 2023 NCAA Tournament when he scored 27 points to lead the Vols into the Sweet 16.
