NBA Comparison: Joe Ingles

Strengths: Wing with impressive size, athleticism and skill level ... Smart, mature decision maker ... Alert on defense ... Does a good job fighting through screens to stay in front of his man ... Does a good job using his length on defense to disrupt passing lanes and obstructing his opponent’s view ... Very quick for his size, should be able to guard NBA small forwards ... Does a good job defending in transition and not allowing easy baskets ... Has gotten better and more aggressive attacking the basket off the bounce ... Possesses good burst to the rim ... Finishes strong and is able to beat opponents off the dribble ... Scores really well around the rim ... Handles the ball well for a forward ... Pretty aggressive but also in control ... Confident stroke from deep ... Moves well without the ball ... Has the quickness to free himself for open shots ... Team mentality. Not a selfish player ... Focused player, who shows a willingness to work and improve ... Very willing passer and eager to make the right basketball play ... Very athletic run/jump[ athlete ... Runs the floor well in transition ... Can throw it down with ease ... Put a lot of work into getting stronger over the offseason, and the results are apparent as he looks a lot stronger than he did as a freshman .... Passes the eye test and looks like an NBA player from a physical standpoint ... Good size at 6'7 with a near 7' wingspan ...

Weaknesses:
To make the jump to an elite level player, he will need to improve his consistency as a shooter and scorer ... While he has a confident stroke, his percentages could improve (35.2% from 3-point range and 65.5% from the foul line) ... More reps and an ability to slow things down a bit should help improve those percentages ... His aggression is a good thing but sometimes he needs to slow it down and not force things. Has the tendency to get called for charges ...

Outlook: After nearly entering the NBA after his freshman season, Wilkes figures to be one of the top non-freshmen available for the 2019 NBA Draft ...

Notes: Measured 6'6 without shoes, 6'7 with shoes, 199 lbs, with a 6'11 wingspan and 8'8 standing reach at the June 2017 USA U19 tryouts ... Entered the 2018 NBA Draft after his freshman season and attended the NBA Combine, but opted to pull his name out and return for his sophomore season ...
