With the San Antonio Spurs and the other 29 NBA teams evaluating prospects at the Combine, who stood out for the best measurements?

Over the weekend, the San Antonio Spurs and the rest of the NBA watched over the 2018 NBA Combine. It’s a multi-day event for organizations to interview and check out the prospects, entered in the 2018 draft, in action.

Measurements stand as one of the Combine’s most discussed parts. It lets teams see how tall players are, their wingspan, standing reach and more.

Who stood out at the Combine in the measurements area? Let’s take a look (all numbers are from NBA.com):

Body Fat Percentage

  1. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: 3.00 percent
  2. Bruce Brown: 3.75 percent
  3. Tyus Battle: 4.00 percent
  4. Jevon Carter: 4.15 percent
  5. Hamidou Diallo: 4.45 percent

Hand Length (Inches)

  1. Jaren Jackson Jr.: 10.00
  2. Isaac Haas: 10.00
  3. Brandon McCoy: 9.75
  4. Austin Wiley: 9.75
  5. Mohamed Bamba: 9.75

Hand Width (Inches)

  1. Moritz Wagner: 10.75
  2. Allonzo Trier: 10.50
  3. Isaac Haas: 10.50
  4. Mohamed Bamba: 10.25
  5. Kevin Harvey: 10.25

Height Without Shoes

  1. Isaac Haas: 7′ 1.25”
  2. Brandon McCoy: 6′ 11.5”
  3. Mohamed Bamba: 6′ 11.25”
  4. Moritz Wagner: 6′ 10.5”
  5. Jontay Porter: 6′ 10”

Height With Shoes

  1. Isaac Haas: 7′ 2.75
  2. Mohamed Bamba: 7′ 0.75”
  3. Brandon McCoy: 7′ 0.75”
  4. Udoka Azubuike: 7′ 0.25”
  5. Jontay Porter: 6′ 11.5”

Standing Reach

  1. Mohamed Bamba 9′ 7.5”
  2. Udoka Azubuike: 9′ 4.5”
  3. Isaac Haas: 9′ 3.5”
  4. Austin Wiley: 9′ 3”
  5. Brandon McCoy: 9′ 2.5”

Wingspan

  1. Mohamed Bamba: 7′ 10”
  2. Udoka Azubuike: 7′ 7”
  3. Jaren Jackson Jr.: 7′ 5.25”
  4. Isaac Haas: 7′ 5”
  5. Austin Wiley: 7′ 5”

It’s mostly the same players on these lists, due to the centers and power forwards as the tallest prospects of the draft, to no surprise. However, Bamba’s 7′ 10” wingspan stood out among the rest, which should make him a freakish player under the hoop, as a rim-protector for a team in the lottery. The same went for his standing reach.

Haas was all over the Combine, as well, and could intrigue teams with his measurables. That’s along with Azubuike, a potential second-round pick.

These measurables will stick around for the next four weeks, until the 2018 NBA Draft takes place on Thursday, June 21. Who were you most impressed with amongst this group?
