Check out the biggest player ever measured at NBA draft combine

UCF center Tacko Fall is a big dude. The numbers don’t lie.

The center from Senegal set records with his measurements at the NBA draft combine, which starts Thursday in Chicago.

In all 66 players are invited to take part in the showcase for NBA teams. Fall was among an additional 11 players who were picked from the G League Elite Camp held earlier this week. 

The NBA draft combine features NBA prospects in five-on-five games as well as shooting and strength and agility drills. ESPN 2 will air coverage Thursday and Friday from 3-7 p.m.

The Atlanta Hawks hold the No. 8 and No. 10 pick in next month’s draft.

Fall’s official measurements are:
Height: 7 foot, 5-1/4 inches without shoes, 7-foot-7 with shoes
Weight: 289 pounds
Wingspan: 8 feet, 2-1/4 inches
Standing reach: 10 feet, 2-1/2  inches
Body fat: 6.8% standing reach

Measurements for height, wingspan and reach surpass any dating back to the 1980s.

Oregon’s Bol Bol — the son of former NBA’er Manute Bol — officially measured in at 7-foot-2 1/4 with shoes. His wingspan measured 7-foot-7 and his standing reach at 9-foot-7.

Manute Bol, who stood at 7 foot 6 was the second tallest player in league history. Sixers center Boban Marjanovic and the Mavericks’ Kristaps Porzingis are the tallest active players at 7 foot 3.
