Theo Pinson records 8th best wingspan amongst guards at NBA Combine

A late invite to the 2018 NBA Draft Combine, North Carolina’s Theo Pinson is up in Chicago doing Theo Pinson things. His jump shot is obviously a work in progress, but on the basketball floor, Pinson does a little bit of everything.

On Thursday, Pinson measured with a wingspan of 6-foot-10.75; that’s notable for the 6-foot-5 (without shoes) Pinson. In terms of wingspan measurement, that ranks eighth amongst all guard/wing forward prospects at the combine.

Beyond the measurables, Pinson did some things defensively that would almost certainly make his former coach Roy Williams proud.

In a game yesterday that involved several other ACC players — Tyus Battle, Gary Trent, Josh Okogie and Devon Hall — Pinson was a jack of all trades.

Theo Pinson: four points, 0-of-2 3-point attempts, four assists, four rebounds and three turnovers.
