Milwaukee Bucks Draft Scouting Report: Blake Wesley – Strengths

Scoring Upside

Blake Wesley is long and athletic with the potential to be able to score in many different ways at the next level. He is quick and can maneuver through the defense with different moves and change of pace, and he can get to the rim or pull up for jumpers. Per Synergy, he shot a solid 39 percent on 2-point jump shots and definitely has shown the ability to get to his spots and get into his pull-up jumper. Wesley is slippery and able to create separation from the defense to get shots off. He has a nice combination of length, quickness, ball handling, and moves that give him high upside as a scorer and shot creator.

Pick and Roll Playmaking

Although Wesley is more of a score-first player, he definitely is capable as a playmaker and passer, particularly out of the pick and roll. He generated 1.37 points per possession on his pick and roll passes, which ranked in the 96th percentile this past season. He has shown the ability to be proactive and make advanced reads on his passes, and when you combine that with his ball-handling, he has the potential to play some point and potentially be a lead playmaker for a team in the NBA.


With a 6’11” wingspan and great athleticism, Wesley is a nice defender. Not only does he have the physical tools to be great defensively, but he is energetic on that end and always locked in. In most games at Notre Dame, he was assigned to guard the other team’s best scorer, and he was able to do a good job. He should be someone who can guard 1-3 in the NBA effectively, and he is a disruptor who gets steals and gets out in transition where he thrives with his athleticism. Wesley’s motor and physical tools make him a good defensive prospect overall.
