Inconsistent shooter

Summary:

Wendell Moore is a tough, physical swingman that could project to be a defensive specialist at the NBA level.  He has fairly solid playmaking and defensive skills, and he played really well in his team’s overtime win over North Carolina as a freshman.

This year, Moore had a very good junior season, and he is a very athletic swingman whose strong physical tools and intriguing skill set could enable him to be a good pick for an NBA team in the late first to the second round range of the 2022 draft.
