G/F • 6’5, 220 lbs; 11th year, Marquette

HYBRID

NBA ROLE: TWO-WAY WING

 

One of the hardest working two-way players in the Association, Wesley Matthews seems to add something new every single year; earned a reputation as a lockdown defender early on – at 6’5, Wes is a bit undersized but he gets into a low stance & has a strong upper body*; 12-16 points/night scorer: Wes lights it up from beyond the arc w/ a flurry of arrows: quick draws, long wind-ups, a deadly shot after taking a step back – gets hot from outside (when Wes is locked in, he goes full Oliver Queen); good post player, features a go-to turnaround J; back on track as a two-way wing – adds a veteran presence, scoring + defense to Mike Budenholzer’s lineup
