RE: Jimmy Hall Jr.
Saw his measurements from Portsmouth. 6'7" in shoes will probably concern some teams but NBA teams usually value standing reach a little more particularly in regards to post defense. Hall measured in at 9'0" 1/2 which is really solid. For comparison that's the exact same standing reach as Tristan Thompson. Hall's wingspan was expectedly ridiculous at 7'2". So I think those two measurements will ease concerns about his height considerably. His no step vert was only 23 inches though, which isn't great.

All the physical measurements are fine, but it is the intangibles that must also be considered. Determination, heart, attitude, willingness to sacrifice, etc.

I wonder what Wes Unseld's vertical leap was...

RE: Jimmy Hall Jr.
Interesting note leading up to the draft. The new CBA added a thing called a "two-way contract" that basically lets NBA teams have two additional roster spots for players with under 3 years of experience that will bounce between the G-league (formerly the D-league) and the NBA. This really opens doors for Hall to land on an NBA roster. Essentially there are now up to 60 more roster spots and those spots can only be filled by a small subset of professional players that Hall will be in. The goal of this change was to create an opportunity for young players to stay in the country and still make good money. Since Kent sends guys overseas every year this is a big deal for Kent players going forward.
