As of 2015, Zach LaVine of the Minnesota Timberwolves may boast the NBA's highest vertical jump. In a summer 2014 workout with the Los Angeles Lakers, the former UCLA guard's vertical leap was measured at 46 inches.
Numerous active players have vertical leaps exceeding 40 inches, according to a 2013 Bleacher Report article that ranked the NBA's top leapers. They include Shannon Brown, James White, LeBron James, Rudy Gay, Nate Robinson, Jeff Taylor, Derek Rose, Miles Plumlee and Iman Shumpert. While the league does not officially recognize such statistics, it is widely believed that Michael Jordan possessed the highest vertical jump in NBA history at 48 inches.
