Kris Wilkes

Position: SF From: UCLA Class/YOB: Sophomore
Height: 6’8 Weight: 215 Wingspan: N/A

Strengths:

  • Better shooter than his numbers show. Good corner shooter, which is an important shot off NBA penetration
  • Lanky and athletic at 6’8. Can do some serious damage in the open court when he gets a head of steam
  • A little bit of upside breaking down defenders off the dribble. Leans more on straight drives, but he can do some things off the dribble to get to his smooth shot
  • Length could be a weapon on defense if he decides to use it

Weaknesses:

  • Very nonchalant style of play. Didn’t carry his team along when they were struggling. Just seems to rely on talent at times
  • Defensive engagement is lacking
  • Should be a better shooter, but he never found consistency at UCLA from deep. Not a very good foul shooter either
  • Does not use his size and athleticism as much as he should. Can really elevate at the rim, which should lead to some easier finishes in a more spaces system
