JJJ wingspan is bigger than

JJJ wingspan is bigger than told
K.Knox has enough side for both forward position, MPJ is probably a PF with those measurements

It seem that both weight and standing reach of Wendell Carter was mixed with Jevon Carter

Svi

Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk 6'8 in shoes with a sub-6'5 wingspan.. is that even possible?

That's gotta be a typo. His

That's gotta be a typo. His standing reach is 8'4", which isn't great for his height but WAY bigger than it'd be if his arms were actually that short.

Mykahailuik

SVI"S Wingspan seems quite strange! Yikes! 2nd rounder but definately a bench player or backup if that is indeed accuracte! I still like him and his Basketball IQ.

Other winners

Bieta-Diop, Carter Jr (6'7 w/ a 7'3 wingspan)

Diallo (6'4 with a 6'11 wingspan - we knew this)

Trevon Duval (6'1 w/ a 6'8 wingspan)

Carsen Edwards (very small at 5'10 but a 6'6 wingspan)

Bruno Fernando (6'8 with a 7'4 wingspan)

Melvin Frazier (6'4 w/ a 7'1 wingspan)

Gilgeous-Alexander (6'4 w/ a 6'11 wingspan)

Devonte Graham (6' w/ a 6'6 wingspan - didn't expect the length at all)

Aaron Holiday (small at 5'11 but a 6'7 wingspan)

Kevin Herney (short for his position at 6'6 but a 7'3 wingspan)

Justin Jackson (again short for his position at 6'6 but a 7'3 wingspan)

Shake Milton (6'4 w/ a 7' wingspan)

Josh Okogie (6'3 w/ a 7' wingspan)

Collin Sexton (a little short at 6' but with 6'7 wingspan)

Afernee Simmons (a little short at 6'2 but a 6'9 wingpsan)

Zhaire Smith (a little short at 6'2 but a 6'9 wingspan)

Khyri Thomas (6'2 w/ a 6'10 wingspan)

Lonnie Walker (a little short at 6'3 but a 6'10 wingspan)

If I missed anyone, my apologies. Those guys stood out just glancing at the numbers.

Austin Wiley measured at 6'8.25 but

7-5 wingspan and 9-3 standing reach put him in the top 5 for longest players.

He has also one of the lowest body fat at 5%. I think he would be a steal in the late first.

Not sure if some of the guys

Not sure if some of the guys who came up shorter than expected are winners just because their wingspan is good. I was expecting guys like Sexton, Smith, and Holiday to be a little taller.

Fair point

I think that's fair, but I think a player's true height is an average of their wingspan and standing height.

This gives a better idea of how they play and who they can guard/go head to head with. That's just my opinion.

So someone like Sexton who's 6' but has a 6'7 wingspan has a true height closer to 6'3. And I think that shows with his play. In today's NBA, he probably wouldn't have much trouble guarding the SG position.

Another example: Brad Beal measured 6'3 w/o shoes. For anyone that's seen him/played against him at tournaments though, this was no surprise. But with a 6'8 wingspan and good athleticism, he easily plays like someone who is 6'6.

Bamba is 225 lbs. I knew the

Bamba is 225 lbs.

I knew the height/length would blow it out.

STILL number one on my board.

The Grizzlies NEED to get this guy!

... Omari Spellman has solid height/length numbers.

Moritz Wagner is pretty good if you are at the end of the first round. Might be a great pick for the Celtics at 27 -- a win now guy and could play with some small ball rotations, or at the 5 with Horford at the 4 in "big" lineups. 3 point shooting, good size, some rebounding, fire, and toughness should be a great fit in Boston. Not saying that he is the missing link, but they could use him.

Theo Pinson is one of my sleeper picks for the Grizzlies at 32. Almost 6'7 in shoes with a nearly 6'11 wingspan. If you take some of his high school stuff (freakish dunks, hops, athleticism) and then his college stuff (solid team play, passing, decent drives to the hoop, 3 pointers) you could end up with the next Michael Cooper.

Svi (Kansas) has an ABYSMAL wingspan.

Malik Newman has some OJ Mayo-esque measurements.

Those two KU kids could be there at 32...

Michael Porter has a good height, meh length. A poor man's KD in every respect BUT with a major back injury. I think he goes in that 5-8 range with an absolute floor around 10 (no way the Sixers pass on him).

Ideal Grizzlies draft: Bamba at 4, and after that we are basically playing with house money. Other than that, go BPA at 32 then buy a late first rounder to get Theo Pinson -- Grizzlies need help at small forward, on defense, and could use some low-usage different makers who can also hit the 3... pedigree would help, too.

Donte Inferno is a guy I like who rose a bit in the mocks, but could fall back to earth. A really really solid pick at 32 -- best looking jumper in the draft and could be one of the top handful of perimeter scorers in this thing. I usually have him anywhere from 10 to 16/20 in my internal mock drafts.

Sagaba Konate: A 2nd round guy or a late first sleeper: don't love the wingspan. Shorter.

Collin Sexton: you want a guy like him to be 6'3 or so, but still has a solid wing span. Love his motor.

In this new NBA it's all about getting a high motor, explosive, 2 way freakish unicorn superstar perimeter guy with a high motor, explosive, 2 way freakish unicorn superstar big man. Pair that with a textbook 3rd option with versatile dudes to round out the 8 man rotation. Sexton could fit that bill as the perimeter guy. He is number 2 in my internal mocks now. Yeah he could turn into a ball-hogging disaster. He could also be Isiah Thomas 2.0.

I could see Shai Gilgeous-Alexander moving up. Could be a less-explosive Penny Hardaway with better defense.

Theo

Agree with Theo Pinson being sleeper 2nd rd -undrafted signee...everytime I watched him play his IQ showed, plus he still has athleticism and should be a great glue guy in that Michael Cooper/Garrett Temple role

Mo Bamba - Wow...we all knew

Mo Bamba - Wow...we all knew he was huge but 7ft in shoes with a 7-10 wingspan is just crazy. He grew on me as a prospect as the season progressed and he got more confident, AD-type potential for sure

MPJ at 6-11 in shoes is a winner too, I had him pegged closer to 6-9

Zhaire Smith is a loser not even coming in at 6-5 in shoes, I see a lot of Justin Anderson (PHI) in his game

Oh, I forgot to mention Udoka

Oh, I forgot to mention Udoka Azubuike. Not the best body fat % but not the worst. 6'10 without shoes, 7'0 1/4 in shoes with a 7'7 wingspan. Possibly the top sleeper big man in the draft. Gives you the solid defense, rebounding, shot blocking, and then dunks on your head on the other side of the court.

If the Suns or Hawks opt to go small in the top 3 then they should consider using their mid-first rounders on this guy.

An IDEAL draft pick for a contender to fill out their big man rotation.

Philly at 26 (Embiid backup or twin towers possibilities), Warriors at 27, or Celtics at 27 look ideal.

I would like to see his vertical numbers. If solid, I like the guy -- not sure how high, but he could be in the discussion in the mid first round.

He could end up being a better prospect than somebody like Mitchell Robinson.

Trae Young

At least he's got a better true height to wingspan ratio than Stephen Curry.

Thanks for posting

Bomba can almost dunk on his toes. His arms are so long he can tie his shoes standing up. Could have a Gobert impact. Was disappointed seeing Sexton at 6-1 1/2. That’s awfully squat for a guy who may play some 2 though he’s one of my favorite players in the draft. They should have accounted for his hair and he’d measure out closer to 6-6

I guessed Bamba would have a

I guessed Bamba would have a 9'8" standing reach- I was half an inch off, its 9'7.5'. He's a monster, Thats about 6 inches more than anyone else I could see. Even Kostas Antetekoumpo's reach is just 9'2" and we know he is from stock that makes him a genetic freak. Once NBA coaches get hold of Bamba, he is going to be a spiderweb under the rim. Utah should trade up and get him to play the 4 next to Gobert. Imagine that! They could defend the entire three point line alone by holding hands!

Wingspans seem to be getting bigger and bigger each.

Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk wingspan was T-Rex. Anyone else's wingspan T-Rex arms ?

So ive been working out for a

So ive been working out for a while, and to get under 10% body fat is really hard and your body doesnt really "want" to get there. And I know to get like under 6% you have to take supplements and every little thing you do all day is to stay at the fat percentage, like literally only body builders get there. This is from my knoweldge anyways, and I just have a hard time believing so many of these guys have under 8% body fat.

SGA just got 3%. WTF??


Now I know that they excersize a TON, but still- just sounds crazy to me. What tests do they do for the body fat? Anybody that knows a lot about body fat, ect care to explain? Thanks in advance

"True Jew" to get 2% is

"True Jew" to get 2% is hardcore bodybuilding contest day, fully dehydrated and lots of supps both legal and illegal. They barely drink anything @ 2% and quite a few bodybuilders either collapse and / or go hospital.

Not sure how accurate the 3% is ? Was it taken at the end of workouts maybe ? thats still hard to achieve

Bamba has put up great

Bamba has put up great measurements on his standing reach and wingspan, if he does good work outs I reckon this can propel him back into top 5 on mocks.

JJJ and Wendell Carter also put up good numbers to help cement there draft status, we knew JJJ had a good wingspan but Carter to go with being a high character guy also has good raw size stats.

Michael Porter Jnr put up good numbers too and as an SF will have great size.

Austin Wiley has done his draft stock no harm either, very good defensive potential measurements and top 10 on low body fat. I could see him being an early 2nd rounder maybe even a late first from a team with multiple picks or a contender looking for a defensive guy from bench.

Greek Freak MkII also put up some crazy numbers, will a team take a flyer on him though genetics alone. Marc Gasol despite the pedigree was only drafted 48th and he ended up an All Star!

Robinson

Robinson to me, is a winner too, some says he is 6-3, but come out 6-5 in shoes with decent atheletecism and good shooting stroke
