Ahead of the 2021 NBA Draft, over 60 prospects are putting their skills to the test at the NBA Draft Combine. SI Thunder highlights some of the standouts.

The 2021 NBA Draft Combine returned to its in-person formant this year, scoring 60-plus NBA hopefuls.

Amongst several standings was potential top 10 pick Keon Johnson, who shattered the vertical leap

Johnson led all prospects with a 48.0 max vertical leap. Center Jericho Sims followed with a 44.5, and forward Yves Pons was third with a 42.5.

In some mocks, Johnson has been slated to go as high as six, the pick the Thunder now own after a disappointing Lottery.

Neemias Queta registered the longest wingspan overall at 7-foot-4, with a 9-foot-4 and a half standing reach. Sims followed with a 7-foot-3 wingspan.
