Don’t Develop: Lindell Wigginton
Wigginton spent two seasons at Iowa State University before going undrafted in 2019. The 6’2 guard played his first two years for the Iowa Wolves in the G League before the Bucks signed him to a two-way contract in 2022.
The 25-year-old has seen action in 26 games in Milwaukee over the last two seasons but was outstanding in the G League. Wigginton averaged 22.3 points, 6.0 assists, 3.9 rebounds, and 1.0 steal in 36.5 minutes per game over 20 regular season games for the Wisconsin Herd, but can he translate that production to the NBA?
The 25-year-old played two games in the Las Vegas Summer League for the Bucks where he averaged 13.0 points in just 18.9 minutes per game. He was impressive, but not dominant like a two-year NBA veteran should be in Sin City.
Wigginton is a hard worker, but the Milwaukee Bucks should not focus on the development of the 25-year-old. At best, he is a backup point guard in the NBA. The Bucks have an open spot, but Wigginton is not the favorite to fill it. It is now or never for the 6’2 guard, and the Bucks should move on if he cannot lock down that role during training camp.
