The 2024 NBA Draft Combine is underway in Chicago, as the participants look to make their case to be selected in the upcoming draft.

Former UNC basketball standout Harrison Ingram is among this year's participants, as he put together an impressive performance in his first scrimmage session.

As a member of Team Love, Ingram scored 14 points and recorded four rebounds in just under 20 minutes of action. He knocked down three of his five three-point field goal attempts and three of four free throw attempts, which are definitely positives for the former Tar Heel.

Unfortunately, Ingram's team suffered a 99-84 loss, but he was one of the team's top performers. He was one of three players to score in double-figures, as his -3 plus-minus rating was second-best on the team.

Ingram is looking to showcase his versatility, as knocking down shots, especially from long distance, will certainly help boost his NBA Draft stock. Tar Heel fans can attest to Ingram's high motor and effort on both ends of the floor, as he did a little of everything to help the UNC basketball win games during his lone season on campus.

Sure, fans would love to see Ingram return to Chapel Hill for another go around, but based on how things currently look, don't expect him to be running it back. If Ingram can continue putting together strong workouts and scrimmages over the next few weeks, there's a possibility that he can work his way into the late first round or early second round.
