2014 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Andrew Wiggins


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-8, 200

School: Kansas, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Elite athleticism
  • Explosive at the rim
  • Slashing ability
  • Excels in transition
  • Ball handling
  • Three-point range
  • Can post up smaller defenders
  • Length
  • Terrific defender
  • Can defend multiple positions
  • Solid rebounder




  • Weaknesses:
  • Inconsistent outside shooter
  • Too often settles for jump shots rather than attacking the basket
  • Finishing at the rim
  • Assertiveness


  • Summary: Wiggins possesses the size, athleticism, and attributes to be a star at the next level, which is why he has been considered the favorite to be the No. 1-overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. Wiggins is a terrific talent who has yet to even scratch the surface as how good he can be.

    Player Comparison: Paul George. When George entered the league, he had all the tools you would want to become a star NBA small forward, which he has certainly become. Wiggins is in the same situation. While he may not average 20-plus per game his rookie year (his outside shooting needs to improve), he should be one of the top players at his position by his third year and a future NBA All-Star.
