Tony Wroten

Tony Wroten is, in my opinion, one of the best up-and-coming guards in the NBA. He embodies a lot of strengths that point guards in the NBA need to have. He takes some of the best qualities of other guards and combines them into one package.

After just his first season, Wroten was averaging 13 points per game. Last season was even better, with 16.9 points per game and 5.2 assists.

Wrote goes up strong on all of his attempted shots close to the hoop. It doesn’t matter who he’s going up against, he isn’t afraid to posterize, even though he’s a guard. He’s very atypical from some guards in this sense, because we can’t picture most point guards going up against big men in the paint.

I believe he’s also one of the more “heads-up” guards available for the Sixers. And if you really don’t think that’s true, take a look at this sick assist he had.

Defensively, he’s pretty well aware, too, as he averaged 1.6 steals per game last season.

The main drawback with Wroten is his three point shot. He’s barely shooting higher than 20% from beyond the arc. His two point shot is much better at nearly 50%, luckily, but I’ll be looking for him to improve his three point shot if he gets the starting job.

Additionally for the negatives, he averaged just about four turnovers a game last year. He’s good at taking the ball on defense, but he also needs to protect the rock once he’s got it in his possession.
