We’re just aggregatin’ today. Grabbing some stuff from around the intertronz about what’s happening at the draft combine in Chicago, where prospects are working out/interviewing and generally being poked and prodded by 30 NBA teams.

A quick roundup of “winners and losers” from SB Nation features Mo Bamba heavily as a big winner, mostly because he measured out with the longest wingspan (7’10”) in combine history.

That seems impressive.

Another guy who seemed to help himself a lot is Duke’s (yuk) Grayson Allen.

He also had one of the best vertical leaps measured yesterday. Allen could conceivably be in play for the Wolves should they wind up keeping their pick. According to Darren Wolfson, the Wolves will be interviewing him this week.

Zgoda has a list of the guys the Wolves talked to yesterday:

Donte DiVencenzo, who served as Villanova’s sixth man is shooting guard who apparently stood out yesterday. As you can see from Zgoda’s list in addition to Allen, they are going heavy on wings in their interviews at any rate, which is obviously a huge area of need.

Other shooters/wings to look good yesterday included Kevin Huerter (Maryland) and Josh Okogie (Georgia Tech.)

Measurements for a few other players can be found at this Bleacher Report article.

If you’re paying attention, anything catch your eye at the Combine?
