D.J. Wilson Could Solve Brooklyn’s Big Man Issues
D.J. Wilson does not have much of a track record of success. The redshirt sophomore played fewer than ten minutes per game in both his injury-shortened true freshman year and his redshirt freshman season in 2015-16. However, Wilson broke out during his sophomore campaign and shone in a larger role, including a stellar tournament for the Wolverines where he averaged 16.0 points per game with 42.9 percent shooting from deep and three blocks per game. His shooting touch, ball handling ability, and defensive upside make him a great fit for Brooklyn’s bench. DraftExpress’ most recent mock draft has Wilson as the 27th pick.He would be a solid choice for the Nets at that point in the draft if he is still on the board.
D.J. Wilson was not always a big man, and that shows in his guard-like offensive game. Wilson spent much of his high school days as a wing. He finished high school as the 159th best player in his class according to the RSCI rankings.
