At the 2017 NBA Combine, Hamidou Diallo wowed NBA Scouts with the highest vertical leap at the event. His 44.5″ vertical tied for the eighth-best in NBA history.
Diallo set the bar high, no pun intended. See how he performed under pressure:

Unfortunately, Diallo could not surpass his previous mark. Even though he almost touched every single plastic marker, it was four inches shorter than last year’s leap. At 40.5,” he’s currently tied for fourth with Grayson Allen.
Diallo’s athleticism manifested in every other drill. Players are still being tested, but he’s currently in the top five of the shuttle run (4.44), three quarter sprint (3.1) and lane agility (10.53). You’ll find all of the combine numbers here.
