Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Decent low post scorer
Adequate shooter, especially from deep
Excels at scoring on the move
Adedquate rebounder
Decent defender
Solid athlete

 
Cons:

Inconsistent shooter
Shot selection issues

Summary:

Aaron Wiggins is a swingman that has been receiving some draft buzz, as he is a player that can steadily knock down three-point shots.

On the other hand, even though he made 41% of his threes as a freshman, he only made 38.5% of his field goals last year.  He actually was not a very efficient scorer despite showing very good proficiency from beyond the arc.  Though he increased his scoring average this season, his shooting percentages still leave a lot to be desired.

He will need to be a smarter shooter in games, and work on finishing plays around the basket more.  He must improve in the finer points of the game, but right now, he may be a second round prospect for the 2020 draft.
