Ike Anigbogu

A freshman center out of UCLA, Ike Anigbogu seems like a good example of a player who could see his stock rise from the Combine experience.

At 6’10”, the 18-year-old could easily have been termed as a little undersized for the center position in the NBA, but having impressed in some of the physical testing in Chicago that perception could start to shift.

Draft Express noted how Anigbogu’s physical measurements were a major takeaway from the Combine. In an excerpt where Anigbogu would be compared to Alonzo Mourning in terms of physical profile, Derek Bodner described:

"“18-year-old UCLA center Ike Anigbogu measured 6’8.5 barefoot with a massive 7’6.25 wingspan, giving him the largest wingspan-to-height differential at this year’s NBA Combine and one of the top marks in our database all-time surpassing notoriously long players like Kawhi Leonard and Hassan Whiteside by a comfortable margin.”"

Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Anigbogu’s meeting with the Bucks, and was able to provide some further detail on how the discussions went.

In a follow-up article written by Velazquez, Anigbogu spoke about the direction his conversation with Milwaukee’s representatives went.

"“They actually explained to me — if hypothetically I was able to be drafted to them — they explained to me my role and how I would fit in with the team, so I felt comfortable with it.”"
