Today is measuring day at the NBA combine and De’Aaron Fox went with the shirtless approach to his standing reach.

But on a serious note: it’s a very wise move by Fox to attend the combine when some of the other elite talents — Lonzo Ball, Josh Jackson, Malik Monk, Jayson Tatum, Dennis Smith — skipped out. Showing up to prove his value, when others aren’t, will go a long way in teams’ eyes and hopefully he will thrive in his shooting workouts to try to dispel some of those concerns with his jumper.
As for the measuring, we’ll know more on how Kentucky’s four guys measured out soon. Hamidou Diallo’s measurements will have a major impact on his draft future.
Stay tuned for those.
