He has not been the best offensive player all season for Michigan and it has been pretty obvious that Hunter Dickinson is the go to guy. The more trustworthy option offensively on the wing was Livers.
Lol since when does best player mean go-to guy on offense? Talk about being willfully obtuse.

Franz seems to need the ball to work his offense and if he can't consistently drive by players or hit shots on a spot up.. then his only real skill is his passing and IQ.. and not being a PG or a SF with a plus handle.. not sure how valuable that will be if he can't run an offense.
If Franz tightens up his game.. he'd actually remind me of Kyle Anderson more than Dunleavy. I think he has the potential to be a better athlete though
When you factor in him being almost 2 years older and being on a stacked team with Jay Williams, Battier, Boozer, and Duhon, is he really that different though? I'm sure Wagner would need the ball less if he could play off of offensive talent like that. It's also kind of funny to see Anderson come up so often in this draft with Scottie Barnes and now Wagner; SloMo is very conservatively a lotto pick in a redraft of his class, and once you start talking about better athleticism or better shooting than him the 5-10 range is a reasonable place to end up.
