Elton Brand has to be up there. At 6'8", he was one of the prolific rebounders and shot blockers in the league with the Clippers. He straight up blocked a Dirk fade away.

Brand was 6'8.25" no shoes and a 7'5.5" wingspan. So that's a difference of 7.25" over his height. His standing reach was 9'2".

That Minnesota kid last year was 6-7 with a 7-4 wingspan.

Maxiell is like 5 feet tall and his arms drag on the floor.

George Hill I always thought had a crazy wingspan for a player under 6'5.

Where are you getting that? Draftexpress has him at 6', 6'3 wingspan*.

*Based on newspaper articles. Height is likely w/ shoes.

Relative to height, Kevin Durant's wingspan isnt that crazy.

Hes near 7 ft with a 7'5 wingspan

If you think he grew 2-3 inches taller since the draft, don't you think his arms grew longer as well?

maybe he grew into his arms?

most kids have longer arms in proportion to the rest of their body at the start of puberty. then their body starts to fill out
