Zach LaVine brings 46-inch vertical to Slam Dunk Contest

The Minnesota Timberwolves may have the worst record in the NBA, but they may have the best dunker in the league. We'll find out for sure during this year's All-Star Weekend, because Wolves rookie Zach LaVine will show off his talents in the Slam Dunk Contest.

LaVine already has 17 dunks this year, and at his draft workout last year, his vertical was measured at 46 inches.

Lavine becomes the 6th Timberwolves player to partake in the dunk contest. The only Wolves player to win it was Isaiah Rider back in 1994.
