2016 NBA Draft Combine Measurement Analysis

Thu, 05/12/2016 - 6:46pm

As is common during the past few seasons, many of the top prospects chose to skip the NBA combine, and this year is no different. Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram are both absent in the list of players that were officially measured, (we have included their measurements from events within the past year) but quite a few players vying for a spot in the 1st round came in and at least participated in the measurements sections. Here are a few winners and losers for the 2016 combine.
