The NBA league office has informed teams that they are permitted to scout two practices in Memphis involving projected 2020 top-10 draft pick RJ Hampton, a source told ESPN.

Representatives from NBA teams were expected to attend five New Zealand Breakers practices in Memphis and Oklahoma City this week as part of the National Basketball League team's trip to the United States for preseason games against the Grizzlies and Thunder. Teams were informed Sunday afternoon that NBA scouts were not allowed to be present to watch Hampton and the Breakers practice until further clarification was obtained by the league office, a source said.

Practices on Sunday night and Monday morning were closed to NBA teams that had traveled to Memphis with the intent of scouting Hampton in practice.
