The Chicago pre-draft camp serves=d as the site for the players to be measured and weighed. Several players probably saw their stock rise or at least not slip when they measured taller than expected. T. J. Ford was measured at 6-0 1/4 with shoes. David West was considered small as a power forward, but he came in at 6-9 1/4 with shoes and had a 7-4 1/4 wingspan. Dwyane Wade measured at 6-4 3/4 with shoes and his long wingspan (6-10 3/4) means he should not have problems at shooting guard.
