Wesley Alves Da Silva is an athletic swingman that could be a potential second round pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. He may not be a polished player, as he may have ways to go, especially on offense, and he has not seen much playing time in the NBB, Brazil’s top professional league.
On the other hand, he has very good size and physical tools, and Alves Da Silva has been known for his defense when he is on the floor. With his ability to guard multiple positions and potential to develop as a player for the next level, an NBA team may take a flier on him late in the second round if he decides to stay in the draft.
