The NBA released official measurements of participants at the 2021 NBA Draft Combine on Tuesday.
Here is a look at former Arkansas guard Moses Moody's measurements:
Body fat: 6.8%
Moody’s 6.8% placed 12th out of 15 shooting guards measured. Tennessee’s Yves Pons is No. 1 among all participants at 4%.
Hand length: 9 inches
Hand width: 10 inches
Moody is one of five players with a hand width of 10 inches. The others are Houston’s Quentin Grimes, Gonzaga’s Corey Kispert, USC’s Isaiah Mobley and Alabama’s Joshua Primo. Only three players have larger measurements and all are frontcourt players.
Height without shoes: 6-4 1/2
Height with shoes: 6-6
Standing reach: 8-9
Weight: 210.6 pounds
Moody was listed at 205 pounds on the Razorbacks’ official roster last season.
Wingspan: 7-0 3/4
Unsurprisingly, Moody measured well here. His 7-0 3/4 is the top measurement among guards at the combine. It is also equal to that of Pons and Georgia Tech forward Moses Wright, who measured 6-9 with shoes on. The only players with greater wingspans are forwards and centers standing 6-8 or taller.
"Wingspan means more to most teams than actual height," draft analyst Chad Ford wrote on NBABigBoard.com. "If your wingspan is six-plus inches longer than what you measure in socks, NBA teams classify it as elite length. There are a lot of prospects in this draft who qualify.
"Moody’s wingspan is just crazy and will make up for his relative lack of explosive athleticism."
