Draft Measurements Are Available
Draft news — NBA has released official measurements and athletic testing results from the Orlando combine.
On first glance I didn’t see any huge surprises. Except, Patrick Ewing, Jr. registered the highest vertical jump of anyone in the camp. (like DJ Strawberry last year).
Of the top guards, Mayo, Gordon and Bayless all had great vertical jumps. (Mayo an inch higher)
Gordon was very strong, outlifting most of the forwards. Mayo and Bayless did fine for their size.
Gordon was almost the fastest player in camp; Bayless a step behind and Mayo was middle of the pack on the sprints.
Brook Lopez is extremely slow and isn’t very strong, either. DeAndre Jordan isn’t much better.
Anthony Randolph (6?10, 197) is about the skinniest person ever, except maybe Shaun Livingtson. That’s either a) bad — he’ll break like Shaun Livingston; or b) great — he was a good college player despite being excruciatingly skinny, so when he puts on weight he’ll be unstoppable!
