Draft Notes

Son of Dajuan Wagner, D.J. is following in his father’s footsteps as a scoring machine that can get buckets on anyone. He’s lightening quick with the ball and excels at taking his man off the dribble and getting to the rim.

Wagner is a bit undersized as a scoring guard at about 6-2 or 6-3. He’s also not the most efficient player, which is a tough combination. His draft stock has fallen quite a bit and he’s no longer considered a likely first round pick and could have to work his way back into the second round.

He’s got good ball handling about and a lot of shake. He’s got a lightening quick crossover and good burst with the ball and can get into the lane. His overall feel on the offensive end is good but he can be a bit wild with his shot selection.

His NBA future will be predicated on him developing his efficiency as a shooter, honing his lead guard skills and becoming a better defender. He’s still young and has plenty of time to develop his game.
