Chad Ford tweets first combine measurements...

Steven Adams - 7 feet with shoes on, 7'4" wing span, and 9'1.5" standing reach
Rudy Gobert- 7'2 in shoes, 7'8.5" wing span, and 9'7" standing reach
Cody Zeller 7'0.25" in shoes, 6'10.75" wing span and 8'10" standing reach
Shabazz Muhammed 6'6.25" in shoes, 6'11" wing span
Otto Porter 6'8.5" in shoes, 7'1.5" wing span
Victor Oladipo 6'4.25" in shoes, and 6'9.25" wing span
Ben McLemore 6'4.75" in shoes, 6'7.75" wing span.
Nerlens Noel- 206 pounds, 6'11.5" in shoes, 7'3.75" wing span, and 9'2" standing reach

compared Nerlens to Anthony Davis who was 6'10.5" in shoes, 7'5.5" wing span and 9 foot standing reach at 222 pounds.

Gobert's measurements are just ridiculous. I'm hoping he's still available when the Sixers draft at 11 but I doubt it. Can we stop making any sort of Davis-Noels comparison because they're not even close.

He's an interior player

He's an interior player unlike Ajinca who tried to play more like a SF.

We already knew about the length before the combine. I'd be more concerned about his ability to fight for and hold his position as well as his potential to add lower body strength. Guarding in space is a concern as well because he's not that quick, but he covers so much area with his length that he can give ground to anyone.

Dieng apparently had the second longest reach.

Really interested to see what KCP's measurements are.

Also interested to see how Gobert does in the athletic testing. Dude only needs to jump like 4 inches to touch the rim that's outrageous.

I think you can almost pencil

I think you can almost pencil in Cleveland taking Otto Porter, its just perfect. Slight chance they go big, but have shown in past drafts a center is not a high priority (passed on JV and Drummond consecutive years).

Irving
Waiters
Porter
Thompson
Zeller

Not bad for just 3 years of rebuilding

I think you should expect the unexpected with Cleveland. Plus whose to to say that Porter is even available when they draft he could easily go as high as 2nd. I could see Cleveland drafting a guy like Steve Adams who may not be projected to go top 5 but could easily outplay his draft range.

How so? Measuring as a 7

How so? Measuring as a 7 footer in shoes will surely help but having a wingspan less than his height surely will not help his stock...

this is how it came out so

Every year, one of the most interesting aspects of the draft combine is the list detailing the official height and weight of each player.

Here's a look at how every player in the draft measured up.

The NBA spends more time scrutinizing things such as wingspan and standing reach than it does actual heights. How big a player is with his hands above his head (for bigs) and with his arms outstretched (for guards) means much more on the basketball floor than a static height.

For starters, here is Nerlens Noel's tale of the tape: Noel measured 6-foot-10 in socks and 6-11.5 in shoes. He had a 7-3.75 wingspan and a very good 9-2 standing reach.

How does he compare with Anthony Davis? Noel actually is a little taller.

Davis registered at 6-9.25 in socks and 6-10.5 in shoes last year. He had a huge 7-5.5 wingspan and a better-than-average 9-foot standing reach.

The biggest difference? Noel weighed just 206 pounds. That's crazy thin for a center. Davis was 16 pounds heavier.

As one general manager told me Thursday night: "His size is fine for the 4 or 5. But I'm deeply concerned about his weight. There's no way he can play the 5 or 4 in the NBA at 206 pounds. That's a major red flag."

Virtually every other top prospect didn't exactly shine in the measurements.

Kansas' Ben McLemore was just 6-3.5 in socks and 6-4.75 in shoes. He does, however, have a 6-7.75 wingspan.

Victor Oladipo was even smaller at 6-3.25 in socks and 6-4.25 in shoes. His wingspan was a very long 6-9.25, though.

By way of comparison, Bradley Beal measured 6-5 in shoes with a 6-8 wingspan last year.

Small forwards
As far as small forwards go, Otto Porter was big, measuring 6-7.5 in socks and 6-8.5 in shoes. He has a very long 7-1.5 wing.

Of notable concern, Shabazz Muhammad was much smaller, measuring just 6-4.75 in socks and 6-6.25 in shoes. He does have a 6-11 wingspan. However, another general manager seemed very troubled by this revelation.

"It's a problem. If you're on the fence about him, this could push you off," the GM said. "As a shot-creator, size matters. Especially with the length of the new wave of small forwards like Paul George. His wingspan helps, but only if he plays defense. And he doesn't."

As a comparison, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist measured 6-7.5 in shoes with a 7-foot wingspan.

Bigs
For bigs, Indiana's Cody Zeller got a strong measurement of 6-10.75 in socks and 7-0.25 in shoes. However, his 6-10.75 wingspan and 8-10 standing reach are on the small side.

French prospect Rudy Gobert had the most ridiculous measurements of the camp: 7-0.5 in socks and 7-2 in shoes with a crazy 7-8.5 wingspan and 9-7 standing reach.

One GM on Gobert: "Those are historic measurements. It's going to help him. That sort of length can cover up lots of weaknesses."

Gonzaga's Kelly Olynyk wins the "T-Rex Award." He measured 7-0 in shoes but with only a 6-9.75 wingspan.

Gobert, Zeller, Steven Adams, Olynyk, Mason Plumlee, Jeff Withey and Colton Iverson were the only players to measure 7 feet or taller. Adams, Gobert, Dewayne Dedmon, Gorgui Dieng and Kenny Kadji all recorded terrific wingspans of 7-3 or greater.

Pierre Jackson, Shane Larkin and Phil Pressey were the only players in the camp to measure shorter than 6 feet tall.

On the good side, few players disappointed with their conditioning this year. Ryan Kelly had the highest body fat percentage at 14.8 percent. He has been injured. Carrick Felix had the lowest body fat of the camp at 3.3 percent.

'Bazz

Shabazz measured 6' 5.75" in shoes at the Nike Hoop Summit, so either he grew half an inch in a year (plausible) or those shoes have some serious lifts.

Great numbers for Adams.

Great numbers for Adams. Clearly the most physically mature big man in the draft. A very solid 254 lbs with just 6.7% body fat
