The televised portion of the NBA Draft Combine began Thursday which this year includes the typical measurable tests and also games of five-on-five.
Included was former Maryland guard Dez Wells, who scored 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting while grabbing five rebounds and dishing out two assists in the day's first game.
Teams play two 20-minute half during the exhibitions and Wells was on a team that included former Nebraska guard Terran Petteway (12 points) and former Louisville guard Terry Rozier (13 points).
In the measurable department, an area where Wells was expected to excel, he registered a 39-inch max vertical and 8.10 percent body fat. He also measured a hand width of 9.75 inches, which was among the best for guards.
Wells currently ranks as the No. 80 overall prospect in this draft, according to DraftExpress.com.
As he tries to work his way into the NBA, it will most likely be as a strong defender with the ability to shoot from deep. Though a slasher and transition player for much of his career at Maryland, Wells improved his outside shooting once his wrist injury healed in the later part of his senior season.
