COLLEGE: KANSAS STATE
WEIGHT: 205 POUNDS
POSITION: SHOOTING GUARD/SMALL FORWARD
PROJECTED DRAFT POSITION: 2ND ROUND PICK/ RISING UP DRAFT BOARDS
PLAYER SUMMARY: A player who NBA scouts are really taking notice of within the past month is Wesley Iwundu. The Kansas State star put together an excellent senior season and has his stock rising a month before the NBA Draft.
Iwundu did a little bit of everything for Wildcats last season. He can play both the SG/SF positions, which is a plus as he can provide versatility. He is an athletic swing player who excels while attacking the rim. At times in college, he played point guard and facilitated the offense. He sports above average ball-handling and passing abilities for a 6’7″ player.
While watching film on Iwundu, we like his ability to create for others. He is unselfish. The 205 pounder has improved on his overall shooting, which was a concern for him coming into his senior year. While he has made strides, he will need to continue to improve on his long distance shooting.
What makes Iwundu an intriguing prospect is that he is a good 2 way player. He can guard multiple positions on the floor. He shows a knack to be around the ball and plays aggressive defense. Iwundu will need to put on weight as he is on the thin side.
Wesley Iwundu opened our eyes. Currently projected as a second round pick (mid-to late), we wouldn’t be surprised to see him get selected within the top 40 picks. He projects as a “3 and D” player, which is not a knock on him. These types of players are becoming more important in today’s NBA. If he can consistently knock down the 3-point shot, he has a chance to be in a team’s rotation next season. We believe he is underrated. He can do a lot of things well on the basketball court.
