Summary:

Moritz Wagner is a very skilled big man that can score the basketball in a variety of ways.  He is a very good shooter and scorer off the dribble, and he possesses a very quick first step to the hoop.  He also has solid footwork and shooting touch when he posts up, as his versatility on offense may really intrigue NBA scouts and teams.​

However, he does not collect many assists, rebounds, or blocks.  He largely may project to be a one-way offensive player at the next level, but his gifted ability to score could allow him to potentially be a first round pick in 2018.
