After being heavily criticized by nearly every major college basketball reporter for declaring for the NBA draft after his freshman year at UCLA, Zach LaVine’s draft stock looks as good as ever. Much thanks to his exceptional performance at the NBA Draft Combine today in Chicago, IL, Zach exceeded expectations and managed to win over many NBA scouts.
Here’s how Zach ranked in testing among all 53 participants:
Lane Agility (#1 – 10.42 seconds)
Shuttle Run (#2 – 2.8 seconds)
Max Vert (#3 – 41.5″)
Standing Vert (#4 – 33.5″)
Sprint (#8 – 3.9 seconds)
