I wouldn't say he was overdrafted. He was a big wing with legit skills coming out of Kansas. Parker at 2is a role player. Embiid is good. Aaron Gordon is okay and Exum has washed out. The biggest knock on Wiggins is that he is passive which doesn't fit well with a 1 scorer. He will be fine, especially with curry
Do you think he would go #1 in a re-draft? Top 5? Top 10?
I dont like doing redrafts years after. It was the draft where Nurkic went mid and Jokic in second round. Jokic would obviously jump higher in scenario, which is why I dont like doing it since it places more emphasis on nba fit and style than college production which the draft and combine more target. I would say top 10 tho
But the evaluations of Wiggins are happening NOW, and certainly him underperforming his draft position is a major factor in that hate. You may not like to do it and that's fine, but most people DO do that. They look at where a player was drafted and how much they are paid and if they are a #1 overall pick and have a max contract and they are not an all-star then they are "trash".
