Jordan Bell Could Have An Immediate Impact In Brooklyn

Jordan Bell is listed at 6’9″ and 227 pounds with a 38 inch vertical leap. His physical measurements at the NBA Combine could catapult his draft stock from early second round to possibly late first round, at this time where the Nets have the 27th pick.  As of now, he is projected to be taken 33rd by Draft Express but he could go in the first round with good workouts prior to the draft.

At the Combine he had the fourth fastest shuttle run (2.83 seconds) which is primarily dominated by guards and he also had the third best time for lane agility (10.83) of any power forward drafted as per the Combine database. With such speed and agility, he is a versatile defender who is capable of guarding all positions if necessary.  Switching is a big part of defenses due to frequent pick and rolls as well as screens so having an elite athlete like Bell will improve the team defense with a player who could guard multiple positions the way he can.
