NBA teams got their first up-close look at USC guard Bronny James on Monday at the 2024 draft combine in Chicago.

From that perspective, one of James' measurements immediately jumped out.

He also impressed with his 40.5-inch vertical jump:

James' standing vertical was 32 inches, via Dan Woike.

As Bleacher Report's Jonathan Wasserman and ESPN's Jonathan Givony noted, the guard also did well in the three-point shooting drill:

Bronny's first 3-point drill. Got hot during last 2 spots. Not elevating much but stroke has always looked clean. <a href="https://t.co/ZffJseNNVf">pic.twitter.com/ZffJseNNVf</a>

Bronny just went a full minute and 15 seconds without missing in movement shooting drill, which is also a test for conditioning, shooting when tired. Impressive stuff here <a href="https://t.co/SD6p95cK07">pic.twitter.com/SD6p95cK07</a>

The 19-year-old was deemed to be 6"1½" tall without shoes, which is noticeably lower than the 6'4" he's listed at for his USC bio page. It's possible the Trojans measured him with shoes on, with the NBA having years ago standardized how each player's height is determined.

Still, standing at 6"1½" would leave James somewhat undersized as a point guard at the next level.

Wasserman wrote that "opinions on Bronny James are all over the place" and posited "there should be a more consensus feeling after getting to watch him drill and scrimmage at the NBA combine."

James' measurements didn't make for a great first impression.

Bronny has been listed at 6-4 everywhere and measured 6'1.5'' at the NBA combine where he's expected to play 5-on-5 <a href="https://t.co/ftnjDsXMjd">https://t.co/ftnjDsXMjd</a>

Bronny's been listed at 6'4", but he measured 6'1" at the combine today… <br><br>How many 6'1" dudes who average 5 ppg get drafted? <a href="https://t.co/BuXEJ1HMrJ">https://t.co/BuXEJ1HMrJ</a>

Bronny James, listed height of 6'4" on every roster he's ever played on, measured just a half inch over 6'1" at the NBA Scouting Combine. <br><br>6'1" guys who averaged 5 points a game in college usually don't get drafted. I sure do wonnnnder what's different in Bronny's case...

It's too early to draw any firm conclusions on where James will land in the 2024 draft, but we can probably start pumping the brakes on him coming off the board in the first round.
