Mo Bamba Sets Record At NBA Draft Combine

Mo Bamba

Everyone knew Mo Bamba had great length but no one at the NBA Draft Combine knew until they measured his wingspan. The former Texas standout recorded a 7-foot-10 wingspan shattering Rudy Gobert's record of 7'8 in the 2013 NBA Draft Combine.

He also had the longest standing reach of 9-feet, 7.5 inches among the combine participants in the current draft class.

Bamba swatted nearly everything in sight for the Longhorns last season, blocking a Big 12 leading 3.7 shots per game as a freshman. His wingspan now explains why he is such a great rim protector. Bamba's stock was already quite high entering the pre-draft process, and his freakishly long wingspan and standing reach should only boost it because of how he's put it to use on the floor.
