Default With the new 2020 season rule about player heights/weights how will they be listed?

Does anyone have the details? I do know it will be a rounded to the nearest inch number, so for example 6-7.75 will become 6-8. But what I'm unclear on is will they list with their "in shoes" measured height? Or will they list based on their barefoot height? Really glad the NBA is cracking down on this finally btw to come up with some sort of standard instead of just letting players go by word of mouth (most of the time highly exaggerated, and sometimes underbilled).

Also will the actual measurements be shared publicly? Would be awesome to know how some veterans cut weight to extend their careers or how other players put on weight from rookies to prime as far as weight goes.

Sorted by heights (rounded to the nearest inch, IE 6-9.5 = 6-10) - and the league has decided to list them without shoes:
https://stats.nba.com/players/bio/?s...T_INCHES&dir=1

Sorted by weights:
https://stats.nba.com/players/bio/?s...R_WEIGHT&dir=1

Interesting bits at a glance:

* LeBron was found to be "6-9" (6-8.5 rounded up, up from his 6-7.25 draft data)
* Kevin Durant has still ducked the system due to his injury (but I bet he rounds to 6-10 and under 235)
* Currently only 7 players are 7-1 or taller, 20+ players were listed 7-1 or taller in seasons prior that are now either knocked down to 7 foot or below
* Not many players are over 275lbs either - only Tacko Fall was above 300
* Kevin Love went from 6-10 to 6-8
* JJ barea went from 6-0 to 5-10

The updates are still incomplete. Many players like Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook are still penciled in at their classic listings. For example Chris Paul will likely be penciled in at 6-0 instead of 6-1 if his 5-11.5 draft data is any indicator. Westbrook probably weighs more than 200lbs. etc. Hopefully by the end of the season the NBA will have fully updated the list and a lot of the guesswork will be a thing of the past

So LeBron is 6'9 and Love is 6'8 ?

Well there goes all the credibility
