Tony Wroten Jr. has the talent to be a Top Five pick. Unfortunately for him, his game needs so much work in certain areas that some scouts don't think he is worth a first round pick.
Wroten has the size of a combo guard, he is 6'5" and weighs 205 pounds. His size is one of the things that some scouts are in love with, he has the size and speed to guard both point guards and shooting guards in the NBA.
Last season at Washington, he averaged 16 points, 3.7 assists, and 5.0 rebounds a game.
Wroten has exceptional court vision and is a great passer, skills that will transfer to the NBA game. The ex-Husky has the ability to make his teammates better, and should create a lot of open looks for them.
NBA GM's must be salivating over Wroten's play-making ability. Once he learns his teams' NBA offense, he should translate that knowledge into a lot of assists.
Wroten has the ability to get into the paint, another trait that is never undervalued by NBA scouts.
His jump shot needs a lot of work and he is terrible from behind the three-point line—he shot just 16 percent from that range last season.
Wroten is very raw offensively, and must develop some type of jump shot to force defenses to respect that part of his game. If he is able to do this, then he will be very difficult to stop.
Wroten's current skill-set will convince a GM to take a chance on him sooner than later, and there is a chance that he could slide into the end of the lottery.
