Aaron Gordon nearly jumps too high at NBA Draft Combine

The Arizona Wildcats certainly weren’t lacking for athleticism last season.
Early Friday, guard Nick Johnson impressed with a vertical jump of 41.5 inches at the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago.
It was an impressive mark for the 6-foot-3 guard. However, his feat was nothing compared to Arizona teammate Aaron Gordon.
A 6-foot-8 forward, Gordon spent just one year in Tucson but was known for his amazing athleticism, often displayed with a variety of dunks.
Friday, he showed off just how high he could jump — and it forced the evaluators to change how they did things.
Aaron Gordon has a 39 inch max vert. Terrific for a player his size. #NBACombine
