D.J. Wilson Could Solve Brooklyn’s Big Man Issues

D.J. Wilson will probably not be ready to start at the NBA level right away. Additionally, his small sample size of high-level success and inability to bang in the paint mean that he may top out as a mid-rotation big man.

However, Wilson’s skill set and high potential upside make him a great fit for the Nets with either of their two first-round picks. If Wilson is available for the Nets with the 27th pick as DraftExpress predicts, he could be the missing puzzle piece for a Brooklyn starting lineup that was already wildly successful down the stretch of the 2016-17 season.
