LaQuinton Ross Has Highest Body Fat Percentage at the NBA Combine

Well, this is not good.

LaQuinton Ross, who will have an uphill battle in making an NBA roster on opening day, has just posted the highest body fat percentage of any player at the NBA combine.

Ross' 16.3% body fat (at 239 lbs) is higher than New Mexico's seven foot center that weighs 252 lbs (13.6%).  Ross reportedly weighed 237 at last year's LeBron James Skills Academy.

LaQuinton has a workout scheduled with the Cavs on Monday, but these numbers will make teams question how serious LaQuinton has taken his training since being ousted from the NCAA tournament in March.

In other unfavorable NBA combine news, Aaron Craft tied 5'9" Jahii Carson as having the smallest wingspan among players measured.

Player Pos Body Fat Height (No Shoes) Reach Weight Wingspan
LaQuinton Ross SF 16.30% 6' 6.5" 8' 10" 238.7 lbs 7' 1.75"
Aaron Craft PG 6.10% 6' 0.75" 7' 10.5" 191.6 lbs 6' 2.00"
