The big guys are currently going through drills at the NBA Draft Combine, and Julius Randle just measured a 35.5″ on his max vertical (29″ standing vertical). That’s pretty good for his size, and the same max vertical that Blake Griffin had a few years ago.
Fellow big Noah Vonleh had a 37″ max vertical, and Aaron Gordon’s was so impressive they had to raise the bar:
The final measurement was 39″. Chad Ford said that the famous Andrew Wiggins vertical from yesterday was 44″.
Randle tweaked his ankle during the lane agility drills, but it doesn’t appear to be too serious. In other news, that’s the first time I’ve been able to write “tweak” in a month without throwing up a little in my mouth, so, progress.
