Official Portsmouth Measurements Released
by: Jonathan Givony - President
April 18, 2010
For this year’s Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, the NBA elected to bring a professional company (B.A.M.) specializing in this area to conduct the official measurements. With listed college heights typically being fairly hit or miss in regards to their accuracy, and the NBA combine now including virtually all draft prospects – as opposed to past years where only a handful of first-rounders would be measured –teams wisely realized that their only opportunity to receive accurate measurements of many potential second round picks is at Portsmouth.

This is a good way for NBA teams to save time and money measuring players in their own private facilities, instead just standardizing the process. This data is just another piece to the puzzle, but is yet another way NBA teams to learn more about potential draft prospects and compare them against each other.

The official measurements can be found here, or under "measurements history" in the "features" tab .

Notes:

-All measurements are listed without shoes. To get a gauge for what a player would be listed at with shoes, add an inch and a quarter. We looked back at our measurement database (which includes every NBA pre-draft camp since 2000) and found that players gain 1.2 inches on average from being measured in shoes, as opposed to without.

-Hamady N’Diaye’s measurements surely won’t hurt him, coming out 6-10 ½ without shoes with a gigantic 7-6 wingspan (top 25 in our database) and a 9-3 standing reach. That, combined with his excellent motor, strong athletic ability and intriguing shot-blocking instincts should get him plenty of looks from NBA teams throughout the draft process, and could easily help him win an NBA roster spot when it’s all said and done.

-Jerome Randle was listed at 5-10, 172 pounds by Cal, and that figure appears to be accurate, measuring out at 5-9 ¼ without shoes, with a 6-0 wingspan and 169 pounds. His measurements are similar to those of Brevin Knight.

- Mikhail Torrance has fantastic size for a point guard, coming out at 6-4 without shoes with a near 6-7 wingspan. His measurements are nearly identical to Rodney Stuckey and are slightly superior to O.J. Mayo and Jrue Holiday.

-Another player who will be helped by his impressive measurements is Tulsa’s Ben Uzoh—at 6-2 ¾ without shoes with a 6-9 wingspan, which is the largest of any of the point guard prospects at the camp. Combine that with his fantastic leaping ability and strong overall athletic ability and you have a very impressive prospect from a physical standpoint. Uzoh still has plenty of wrinkles to iron out in his game, but he’s definitely someone NBA teams will be keeping close tabs on. His measurements are similar to that of Antonio Daniels, just better.

-Along the same lines we find Siena’s Edwin Ubiles, coming out just a hair under 6-6 without shoes with a 6-10 wingspan. He looks the part of an NBA wing player with his fluid style of play and strong athleticism, and measured out that way as well, comparing favorably with those figures to John Salmons at the same age.

-One of the things we liked the most about Tyren Johnson at Portsmouth were his physical attributes. Unfortunately he only measured out at 6-6 ½ without shoes with a 6-8 wingspan, though. While that’s obviously not going to kill his draft stock, it’s not going to help it either.

-Aubrey Coleman wasn’t quite the 6-4 that Houston listed him at, measuring out at 6-1 ½ without shoes, but with a nice 6-5 wingspan to compensate. While he doesn’t possess ideal size, there are quite a few shooting guards who were drafted at the same height, including Ben Gordon, Eric Gordon, Delonte West, Luther Head and others.

-If a stat existed for “wingspan to size ratio,” the leader from this Portsmouth class would surely be Vermont’s Marqus Blakely. Measuring a shade under 6-5 without shoes, Blakely possesses a freakish 7-1 wingspan, which when combined with his NCAA dunk-contest winning athleticism, helps explain why he was such an awesome rebounder, shot-blocker and ball-thief in college. For comparison’s sake, Blakely’s arms are just as long or longer than players like Joakim Noah, Al Horford, Drew Gooden and Charlie Villanueva. While his offense clearly has a long ways to go, his physical attributes, intensity level, versatility and above average basketball IQ (he also averaged nearly 4 assists per game) makes him someone to keep an eye on for the future, possibly as a Luc Richard Mbah a Moute type prospect.
