NBA draft combine: Four players who most improved stock with athletic testing

The NBA draft combine is underway in Chicago and it has already been an incredibly productive few days for scouts around the league. As the top decision-makers in the game gather to watch the next generation of talent audition for a spot on a roster next season, many of the top prospects have been able to separate themselves from the pack. While scrimmages are considered the most exciting part of the activities, measurements and athletic testing are imperative as well. Tennesse’s Keon Johnson set the record for the max vertical jump, shattering the previous best by more than two inches. That will certainly ingratiate him in the eyes of some scouts and executives working for NBA teams. Meanwhile, below are some of the other players who were able to move the needle at the combine so far this week. Note that all anthropometric and strength/agility scores are courtesy of NBA.com.
