Milwaukee Bucks Draft Scouting Report: Blake Wesley – Weaknesses

Shooting Efficiency

He definitely has scoring upside, but Blake Wesley’s efficiency was not great last year. He had mediocre shooting percentages all around, and his mechanics are not the best. Wesley shot just 40.4 percent from the field and 30.3 percent from three, and was below average on catch-and-shoot jumpers (32.5 percent) and jumpers overall (33 percent). A lot of his scoring ability is unproven because the results were not fantastic last year, and this makes him somewhat of a risky pick.


As athletic and long as Wesley is, it is surprising how much he struggled finishing around the rim last season. He ranked in the 13th percentile on shots around the basket, shooting just 41.4 percent. He seems to shy away from contact, and physicality can disrupt him pretty easily. There are times he can be a bit out of control or play too fast, which can throw him off at the rim as well. It will probably benefit Wesley to put on some weight and get stronger so he can handle more physicality and improve as a finisher at the rim.


Everything about Blake Wesley is pretty inconsistent right now. His jumper, his finishing, his overall scoring, his defensive discipline… he still needs to put it all together to really live up to his potential. He shot 25 percent or worse from the field in 10 out of his 35 games this past season, and there were plenty of games where he really disappeared or struggled. As mentioned, this makes him a risky pick for any team because they are buying into his scoring upside that is not yet proven or consistently there.
