The NBA started its annual Draft Combine this past weekend in Chicago, giving fans a small glimpse at the players who will enter the league in a few months.

One of the players in the mix is former Purdue big man Zach Edey, who really impressed league officials as he worked out, performed drills, and showed off all he can bring to teams.

According to Evan Sidery, Edey is going to offer a lot to whichever team signs him.

He will join the NBA as the second-longest player behind San Antonio Spurs star Victor Wembanyama, with a massive wingspan of nearly eight feet.

Even though Edey is nearly seven-foot-four and almost 300 pounds, he was shooting well and has “better mobility than expected.”

Sidery said, “Edey is generating buzz as a surefire top-20 pick who could cement himself in the lottery during pre-draft workouts.”

There has been a lot of reporting about the lack of enthusiasm around this year’s draft.

While there are many talented players in the mix, this isn’t a class that is blowing people away like last year’s.

But Edey is one of the standouts and is only earning more attention because of the combine.

He could be a terrific big man who can grow his skills and become valuable to a number of teams.

His size will be a great benefit, of course, but the fact that he is improving his shooting is also very tantalizing to many front offices.

Edey averaged 25.2 points, 12.2 rebounds, and 2.2 blocks in his senior year at Purdue.

Some people worry that his college skills won’t translate into the NBA but others think he’s the sort of modern big man the league needs.
