Arizona State’s Carrick Felix does not figure to be a first-round pick in next month’s NBA Draft, but many experts believe he will be selected at some point.
Coming off a season in which he averaged 14.6 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.1 blocks per game, the Sun Devil is using the NBA Scouting Combine in Chicago as a chance to show his stuff in front of NBA decision makers.
How he fares on the court will be of the utmost important, but as far as what he can do off it — or, rather, what he is — Felix did pretty well.
ASU’s Carrick Felix measured 6’4.75″ at NBA draft combine. 6’6.25 in shoes. 3.3 body fat was lowest of everyone there.

Odds are Felix’s niche in the NBA, at least early, will be as a high-energy player who can play some defense. And given his measurements as well as his track record, he would appear to have the ability to be exactly that.
