List of drafted prospects with (or exceeding) a 7’ 6.5” wingspan (Gobert = 7’ 8.5”): LARRY SANDERS! (reach N/A), Brendan Haywood, DeSagna Diop, Eddy Curry, ‘Zo Mourning (reach N/A), Hassan Whiteside, Jason Jennings, Shaq, Michael Olowokandi (reach N/A), Saer Sene, Alexis Ajinca

List of drafted prospects within the vicinity of Gobert’s wingspan/standing reach measurements (i.e. within 2” of both): Hassan Whiteside, DeSagna Diop, Saer Sene, Brendan Haywood, Shaq ----------- potentially LARRY SANDERS!, ‘Zo, Olowokandi (standing reaches N/A for all three)

List of drafted prospects with (or exceeding) a 7’ 8.5” wingspan: Saer Sene, Alexis Anjica
