Teams can do their own, but it's totally unknown how they do it, or what they are listing for any given player. The teams know the player's real measurements, but we don't.
For example, the Rockets summer league squad copy and pasted Jalen Greens measurements from his G-League profile. Rockets website has the same height but the weight is different. Green is not 6'6.
The Pistons actually made and listed a new measurement for Cade, but, they listed everybody with shoes on, and seemed to copy and paste measurements for the rest of the team.
The Kings summer league have listed Mitchell at 6'2 despite his pre-draft measurement being 6'0 barefoot, and 6'1.25 with shoes. The Kings website lists Mitchell at 6'0.
The NBA made it official that we are supposed to list players barefoot a couple of years ago, but it's clear that's not happening everywhere. Even when the round of "updates" came, it seems like half the players just kept their in shoe heights (I'm not buying that half the league grew).
As of right now, measurements are a complete mess, and are all over there place, the only thing I'd trust is the draft combine shoe-less measurements, annoyingly, a lot of players skip it, mainly the top picks, and most of the international players.
