Tacko Fall headlines 2019 NBA Draft Combine measurements
The annual NBA Draft Combine gives potential NBA prospects the chance to prove their skills in front of NBA front offices, scouts, agents and more. The weeklong event in Chicago features scrimmages, drills and body measurements.
These measurements – which include height, wingspan, body fat percentage and more – provide an interesting way to view the upcoming Draft class and compare it to years past.
Draft prospect Tacko Fall is the headliner this year. The 23-year-old center from UCF posted the highest marks ever for wingspan (8 feet, 2.25 inches), standing reach (10 feet, 2.5 inches) and height with shoes (7 feet, 7 inches). Prior to Fall, the previous mark for longest wingspan was held by Orlando Magic center Mo Bamba, who was measured at 7-foot-10 in 2018 and was selected No. 6 overall in the 2018 Draft.
Here are the rest of the 2019 category leaders:
