Bamba reportedly shocked everybody in a great performance in the three-quarter-court sprint during his private workout with the Chicago Bulls on Friday, sprinting in just 3.04 seconds.

Bamba, a 6-11 center, has a7’10” wingspan that was the longest ever recorded in combine history. During his one and only season with the Longhorns, he averaged 12.9 points, 10.5 rebounds and 3.7 blocks per game.
According to multiple reports, the Boston Celtics are said to be trying to unload one of their current stars in order to get into the top-5 of the draft and have a chance to select Bamba.
