Notes from Ford...

Chad Ford of ESPN wrote:Here's a look at how the top players in the draft measured up:

The NBA spends more time scrutinizing things like wingspan and standing reach than they do actual heights. How big a player is with his hands above his head and with his arms outstretched means much more on the basketball floor than a static height.

• For starters, here's the John Wall-Evan Turner tale of the tape. While Turner is taller and has a longer standing reach, Wall actually has him beat on wingspan. Turner's wingspan is 6-foot-8. Wall's is 6-9 ... very impressive for a point guard.

• A number of other top prospects shined in the measurements. Hassan Whiteside sported the largest wingspan in the camp at a ridiculous 7-7. His standing reach of 9-5 tied for tops at the camp.

• DeMarcus Cousins, Solomon Alabi, Jerome Jordan, Dexter Pittman and Larry Sanders also recorded terrific wingspans of 7-5 or higher.

• A few other players, including Cole Aldrich, Derrick Favors, Tiny Gallon, Ekpe Udoh and Daniel Orton, had wingspans of 7-4 or 7-5. In short, when you sort through the data, this is one of the longest group of draft prospects we've ever seen.

• Alabi, Jordan, Cousins and Whiteside all had amazing 9-5 standing reaches as well. Aldrich had an impressive 9-3½ standing reach and several players, including Favors, Orton and Ryan Richards, sported standing reaches over 9-2.

•As far as guards go, Dominique Jones, Sylven Landesberg and Wall all sported 6-9 wingspans.

• Sherron Collins was the only player in the camp to measure less than 6 feet tall. He was 5-10 in socks.

• A few players disappointed with their conditioning. Pittman had a whopping 20.8 percent body fat. Cousins wasn't too far behind at 16.4 percent. Tiny Gallon hit 15.1 percent and Orton measured in at 13.8 percent.

• Terrico White and Manny Harris had the lowest body fat of the camp at 3.7 and 3.8 percent, respectively.
