If we're talking about two-way tools for a wing, Andrew Wiggins' set is nearly complete.
At 6'8" with elite-level lateral quickness and a 7'0" wingspan, he has lockdown defensive potential. He has the size, athleticism and quickness to shadow up to four positions on the floor, where he offers valuable defensive versatility.
Offensively, he is averaging 16.1 points per game, and he's looked better than advertised as a shooter. He'll have to refine and expand his half-court scoring repertoire, but there isn't a more potent weapon in the open floor or with an available driving lane to attack.
At this point, he's struggling in areas that allow room for growth like defensive awareness. We've seen him get caught up in screens or flat-footed mid-possession, as his defensive rating isn't too impressive. And at 200 pounds, he could use some extra muscle, given most of the wings he'll be defending will be in that 220- to 230-pound range.
As a scorer, he has to polish up his handle and build his shot-making confidence.
But the interest in Wiggins stems from his long-term potential. And all of his current weakness can be improved over time.
He has the tools and foundation required to be a world-class NBA wing. Those looking to scoop him up with a top-three pick will be hoping for a Paul George 2.0 by the time he hits his stride in the pros.
