I've read elsewhere that Kofi's crew is still in touch with the Illinois staff. If true, #1 - smart, #2 - the door isn't completely closed on returning.

#3 - Personally, I still don't think he's coming back.

Pains me to compliment an Iowa player, but weiskamp is objectively very athletic.
Yeah, Weiskamp tied for the 4th highest max vertical at the combine is not something I expected to see. Also 4th in lane agility.

If it makes you feel any better, Garza was dead last in both the standing and max vertical, as well as the 3/4 sprint.

Weiskamp was also tied for like the 3rd or 4th fastest 3/4 court sprint.

The garza news does make me feel better though.

Ayo measures 6-5 and has a wingspan of 6-10.25 for the 4th longest wingspan among backcourt players. Ochai Agbaji measures 6-5.5 with 5th longest wingspan among same group at 6-10. However Ayo’s standing reach is 8-0.5 while Agbaji’s is 7 inches longer at 8-7.5. What am I missing here? How can Ayo be taller and have longer wingspan, but have a shorter standing reach? Is that a typo, or am I thinking about this all wrong?

7 inches though? Guess it is possible. Maybe Ayo’s upper torso is wider too. I guess that would increase wingspan though not show up in standing reach too. I knew had to be relatively easy explanation. Thanks.
The Twittervese looked into this a bit and apparently Ayo had a standing reach that was five inches higher when he was measured for Team USA while in HS. Could be a case of sandbagging to inflate his vertical. 39 inches is pretty darn high for a player that I never perceived as having explosive verticality.

Question for the NBA fans. Who would you say is the slowest, least athletic rotational player* in the league currently?

*I'll arbitrarily define that as playing at least double-digit minutes per game.

Weiskamp has made himself some money with all these measurables. Just might have moved him ahead of Garza in the draft.
He also lit it up in one of hte combine games. I think i saw stats on twitter saying 27 and 10 or something while hitting 6 threes.

I’ll say Boban Marjanovic, although he was under 10 per in the regular season, but quite a bit over in the playoffs. The MVP, Nikola Jokic is no where near what I’d consider an NBA freak athlete, but the dude has insane vision and understands space like not many in the league.

As far as non big men go Joe Ingles for Utah probably takes the cake for that one.

This is far from the worst but Jalen Brunson, who I love and wish we had got here, has done very well without being a plus athlete, very high IQ helps. Did we have OA then?
 
#222      
Teams I really hope Ayo and/or Kofi *don’t* go to, in no particular order:
Kings
Pelicans
Cavs
Detroit
Orlando
Houston

Jared Dudley deserves a mention, though he hardly plays anymore
