The former Texas Longhorns star enters this year's NBA Draft as a potential top-5 pick, and he helped his cause with some eye-popping measurables at the draft combine in Chicago.

Bamba broke the ombine record with a 7-foot-10 wingspan. He also meaured in at just under 7-1 with shoes on. Though his offensive game proved raw during his one season at Texas, he dominated on defense.

Bamba also measured in with the longest standing reach (9 feet, 7 1/2 inches) out of anyone in the draft class. Though marked as a center, he weighed in at only 226 pounds, meaning he likely will spend most of his time in the NBA as a power forward.

NBA trade rumors: Celtics interested in Mo Bamba, could move up in draft, SN sources say .
Sources told Sporting News that the Celtics have expressed interest in Texas big man Mo Bamba, including interviewing him at the Chicago pre-draft combine two weeks ago. Bamba measured in with a record wingspan of 7-10 in Chicago, reinforcing his status as the most ready-made rim protector in the draft.Of course, the challenge is securing a pick that will be high enough to land Bamba. He could go as high as No. 3 to the Hawks, and there has also been talk that the Magic — picking sixth — are high on Bamba and won’t let him drop past their slot.
