Shoots the ball at a high percentage from deep and the free-throw line
Effective with the catch and shoot
Very quick, especially in transition
Pesky on-the-ball defender with quick hands
Strength helps offset lack of height
Isn't afraid to take it at bigger defenders
Likes having the ball in his hands in pressure situations
Got himself in great condition after coming to college a bit overweight (played all 40 minutes in 11 games as a junior)
Undersized for an NBA point guard
Played a lot of zone at Arizona and will need to prove he can handle man-to-man defense
Lacks any explosiveness at the basket
Not a great leaper
Summary: If Wise were 6-2, he would probably be a first-round talent. But he's not. He is generously listed as 5-10, but is more around 5-8 or 5-9. The kid can ball and made a major leap in his junior season, but still doesn't translate well into the NBA which is why he will likely be a late-second round pick or go undrafted. (Interesting tidbit: Only two players under 6-0 have been drafted since 2001: Nate Robinson and T.J. Ford)
Player Comparison: Speedy Claxton. Claxton stands at 5-11, but as his nickname suggests, he uses his quickness as well as his knack for scoring and finding teammates to keep a job in the Association. Wise will have to follow suit if he is going to make a career in the NBA.
@Bolash747 I agree with a lot of your assessments. But even with the money you freed up. The Eagles are not gonna be able to afford Bennie Logan on the open market, unless he takes a discount. In which is possible, but I doubt it. The Desean Jackson signing believe it or not I love. But he's the 2nd best receiver in the market. Your not getting him at a 1 year prove it deal. He will cost a lot and prob be in the 3 year range. Your better off signing WR Kenny Stills and WR Robert Woods.
