Yeah i dont get it either
Michigan is my 2nd favorite college team and i REALLY dont get the hype. Hes good, but not top 10 pick good....I MUST be missing something
Maybe because he is 6'9-ish SF that gives them Gordon Hayward vibes? Plus he is young enough that he still has the dreaded "potential" factor.
Hayward as frashmen shot 45% for 3 his shooting did dip a lot in year two, and even in nba it was shaky as he was changing short arch i think, but he was always viewed as plus shooter.
Wagner for 2 years shot 31% and 34% for 3.
He is very good FT shooter but his 3s simply don't go in at great rate.
I also really struggle to see how execlly he will be able to defend SFs.
Shot just under 38% on two point jumpers this season, reinforcing that he will not be much of a shooter, at least without years of development … Was only assisted on 7.7% of his two-point jumpers, and can get baited into shooting jumpers rather than getting to the lane … Averaged 12.5 points per game this season, with only six games that he recorded at least 20 points, showing he will be a limited offensive threat
You are getting guy who isn't elite athlete, who isn't elite shooter, who is unremarkable college scorer despite 2 years of experience and who probably won't be able to be plus defender.
And there is his 7 foot brother who also happends to be incapable of defending without fouling and his "shooting" that should have kept him in nba , simply does not hold up,despite most of his shots being wide open?
It's a no for me. To me this yells Hezonja.
