Consider the veil lifted.
There's no hiding height in the NBA draft. No more "listed" heights when you can see schools have inflated 'em. Prospects get measured without shoes and we get to see the results. Even better, we get to see wingspan and reach. A big thanks should go to Draft Express, which keeps all the info in a handy table.
(Why don't colleges keep that kind of stuff? Include it on the roster as another way to intimidate foes, or at least as a fan courtesy so we can banter about it.)
That's just the first run at it from guys who attended the Portsmouth Invitational. More will get added later, though there are a few things to note.
Mikhail Torrance could sneak into the first round given he's the same size as Rodney Stuckey and bigger than O.J. Mayo and Jrue Holiday. He can play a little, too.
Jeff Foote is a true 7-footer. Guy's huge.
Cal wasn't lying about Jerome Randle. He really is 5-10.
Marqus Blakely doesn't just have freakish jumping ability. The guy's just 6-5, but he has a 7-1 wingspan. Draft Express figures that makes his arms as long as Joakim Noah, Drew Gooden and Charlie Villanueva.
No wonder he could do stuff like this.
