2014 NBA Draft Player Measurements

The 2014 NBA draft is next month. The Cavaliers have the No. 1 pick. (Here’s our latest Mock Draft.) Last week at the NBA Draft Combine, player measurements were taken, and you can scroll the chart above to see how players stack up. Here are a few things jump out:

* Dante Exum, the Australian point guard, is 6-foot-6, 196 pounds, and has a nice wingspan for a PG – 6-foot-9.5, which is slightly larger than small forwards CJ Fair and Rodney Hood. So he’s basically a shade larger than Michael Carter-Williams, but younger and without a year of college.

* The tallest college player in the draft is Arizona State’s Jordan Bachynski, who is 7-foot-2. I’m projecting him as a mid-late 2nd round pick.

* UCLA’s Zach LaVine, a high-flying prospect who wants to play point guard, is 6-foot-5.75 but at 181 pounds he’s a twig. For instance, PJ Hairston, a 6-foot-5.25 shooting guard, is 229 pounds, or  nearly 50 pounds heavier.

* By a significant margin, Noah Vonleh has the largest hand width of any player in the draft – 11.75. Everyone in the draft can almost certainly can palm a basketball (Aaron Craft?) but maybe Vonleh’s comically large hands can palm a ball with three fingers?
