Day 2 of the 2014 NBA draft combine is in the books but not before some of the most notable players in the incoming class stood out with big-time measurements and impressive times. 

It's certainly a depleted field of athletes in Chicago for the event, with no Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins or Joel Embiid—among others—in attendance. But that's only allowed for some other top prospects to shine bright in the absence of those top names.

While there isn't as much intrigue surrounding the NBA draft combine as there is for its NFL counterpart, it still allows for scouts from all 30 teams to take in a top heap of talent and see how they measure up against one another.

Let's take a look at the complete results from Day 2 measurements, as well as the moments that stood out most in Chicago.

Day 2 Highlights

Aaron Gordon Can Jump

There wasn't really any doubt considering what he put on display in his one year at Arizona, but possible lottery pick Aaron Gordon once again showcased his epic leaping ability on Friday.

His vertical jump of 39 inches wasn't just the best among power forwards in this year's class, but it also ranked on the all-time combine list, per ESPN's Numbers Never Lie

ESPN Highlights caught a glimpse of Gordon's jump:

Gordon was jumping so high at the combine that they even had to raise the apparatus for the vertical jump before his attempt, Sports Illustrated's Brian Hamilton reported. 

The Arizona standout was not just jumping out of the gym but also flying around it as The Arizona Republic's Paul Coro noted:

Gordon was already viewed as a lottery pick and one that could very well go in the top 10, but he's improving his stock even more at the combine. His ability was on display time and time again at Arizona but measuring up this well against the competition speaks even more toward his soaring stock.

Don't be surprised if Gordon ends up as one of the first five names off the draft board. 

 

Noah Vonleh's Massive Hands

A one-and-done season with the Indiana Hoosiers was enough to make Noah Vonleh a sure-fire first-round pick, but his performance at the combine proves that his measurements match up with the best in the class.

The statistic of his that stood out most in Day 2, however, was his hands.

Vonleh's hands measured at a massive 11.75 inches, much bigger than the second-biggest in the field and ranking up there with the biggest the combine has ever seen, per Basketball Insiders' Alex Kennedy:

NBA Legion tweeted a picture of Vonleh comparing his hands to those of ESPN's Andy Katz:

On paper, Vonleh has all of the makings of a formidable power forward at the next level. Measuring at nearly 6'10" and 250 pounds at the combine only reassured that.

Having huge hands won't make or break a prospect's stock, and it's doubtful that scouts will look too much into one stat. But it's impossible to deny Vonleh's massive hands and how they could benefit him at the next level.  

 

P.J. Hairston's Jumping, Maturity Impress

Off the court is still a question mark, but there's no doubting P.J. Hairston's basketball ability and he proved that once again at the combine's second day.

The former North Carolina standout had one of his biggest moments of the draft process on Friday when he notched a max vertical jump of 37". 

NBA Draft caught a video of the jump:

That wasn't all Hairston was putting on display. His outside shooting prowess impressed ESPN's Jeff Goodman on Thursday as he was lighting it up from deep.

Most important for Hairston's stock, however, was the positive reports on his interviews.

Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell caught up with the David Glenn Show Friday to talk Hairston and the draft:

Certainly a couple of interviews won't hush criticism stemming from his dismissal from the Tarheels' program, but Bonnell does raise a fair point. Perhaps getting his feet wet in the NBDL allowed Hairston to put his past behind him as he transitions into professional basketball.

All of the talk surrounding Hairston at the combine will be about his incredible measurements and impressive play, but his increased maturity is as good a sign as any of his chances to succeed in the NBA.
