NBA Comparison: Kelly Olynyk

Strengths: A protoypical pick-and-pop big man, Wagner has a great combination of size and skill ... Shot 39% from 3 his last year at UM, a great number for a 6'11" guy ... Crafty scorer who can get open looks and get creative both around the rim and on the perimeter ... Faceup 4 with decent handles and a really good first step at 6'11"... Runs the floor well in transition, creating a lot of opportunities at the rim in those situations ... Efficient player who shot 53% or better each year of college ... Patient inside with a variety of post moves ... Quick hands that allow him to strip the ball when playing help defense ... Good feel for the game, provides leadership and instinctiveness on the floor ... Shows a lot of determination ... Not a great athlete but has shown the ability to hold his own when isolated on the perimeter against Big Ten guards ... Good hands and pick-and-pop threat make him ideal pick-and-roll big ... Deadly spin move when finishing at the rim ...

Weaknesses: What may have worked with his faceup game in college will likely be much more easily neutralized in the pros as defenders are quicker and longer ... Not a great rim protector and not really athletic or quick enough to defend the 4 either ... May be neutralized to merely a stretch big at the next level ... Average rebounder for a 6'11" guy ... Does not project to offer a lot of versatility at the next level besides being a big guy who can shoot and occasionally score inside ... For a 40% 3point shooter, he surprisingly struggles from the FT line at below 70% ...

Overall: Wagner has upside as a deadly shooter with great size and a developing faceup game, but against quicker, more athletic competition, he may struggle to get looks both inside and out or offer much outside of shooting...

Notes: Measured: 6' 10.5'' barefoot, 6' 11.5'' in shoes, 241.4 lbs, 7' 0'' wingspan, 9' 0'' standing reach, 6.75% body fat, 9.00 inch hand length at the 2018 NBA Draft Combine ...
