Draft Notes

Wooten is a springy 6-9 athlete who has a ton of natural ability and a lot of upside. Could be a first rounder if he keeps on his current trajectory.

  • Athleticism and length
  • Shot blocking, defensive instincts
  • Defensive versatility and ability to switch
  • Hustle plays and willingness to do the dirty work
  • Offensive rebounding
  • Dunking ability and playing above the rim 
  • Shows good court vision and solid understanding of the game
  • Takes good shots, doesn’t try to do too much 
  • Upside
  • Weaknesses
  • Doesn’t stretch the floor on offense
  • Doesn’t have a polished post game or a go-to move and is still figuring out his footwork
  • Poor free throw shooter
  • Foul prone

Comparisons

  • Similar to Jordan Bell but bigger, longer and with even better bounce.
