The NBA Draft combine continues through its second day with a few big names finishing up testing. Here are a few updates from Chad Ford, who has been tweeting results as they come in. Most notable? Shane Larkin recorded the second-biggest maximum vertical leap in combine history.
Larkin's 44-inch maximum vertical stands second to Kenny Gregory's 45-and-a-half inches in 2001. Larkin also posted a 34.5-inch standing vertical leap and the fastest time in sprint drills (3.08) thus far, according to Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports. Larkin's raw athleticism is undeniable with the impressive combine results he posted.
CJ Leslie recorded a 10.19 in the lane agility drill. That's the best time in the lane agility drill thus far, an impressive feat for a 6'9 prospect. He also posted a 32.5-inch standing vertical and a 40.5-inch maximum vertical leap.
Glen Rice Jr. recorded a 33-inch standing vertical and 40.5-inch maximum vertical leap. Michael Carter-Williams also impressed with a 31.5 inch standing vertical and 41-inch maximum vertical. Shabazz Muhammad recorded only a 29.5 standing vertical and a 36-inch maximum vertical leap -- underwhelming results compared to the number of players posting great numbers at the combine.
Ford reports that there have already been ten prospects who have recorded at least a 40-inch maximum vertical through the day. Athletes abound at the NBA draft combine as the incoming draft class continues to be scouted.
