Moritz Wagner

Forward – 6’10”

As a sophomore, Moritz Wagner was the only non-senior to work out for the Bucks on Thursday, and as a result, he’s a prospect who still has major decisions to make.

M Live reported that Wagner’s stock is very unpredictable at the moment as the prospect places in the first round of Chad Ford’s draft for ESPN, but doesn’t figure at all in Draft Express’ mock for 2017. The player himself had the following to say on his situation:

"“If I have a feeling that a team believes in me that much to draft me in the first round, I have to seriously consider that. As long as I don’t have that feeling, I won’t risk losing (two) years of eligibility at Michigan.”"

Having seen a major uptick in his minutes as a sophomore, Wagner’s skills have become more apparent, but whether that’s enough to take the jump to the next level at this point remains to be seen.

The German native possesses a good shooting touch for his 6’10” frame, as evidenced by his averages of 56 percent from the field and 39.5 percent from deep for his sophomore season.

Altogether combining for averages of 12.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.0 steals, there’s certainly potential in Wagner’s game, and now it’s just up to the NBA teams decide if he needs some more time in college to further polish his skills.
