The moment p3sportscience shared this Instagram picture of Andrew Wiggins jumping, it went viral. After picking our jaws off the ground, one of the first questions we pondered was, “How high can Andrew Wiggins jump?” We may know that answer now thanks to ESPN NBA Insider Chad Ford. Ford spoke with Wiggins’ agent Bill Duffy, who informed him that the soon-to-be NBAer has a 44 inch vertical.
