Nice handles. Probably end up being a taller version of Anthony Davis.

Wiggins been known in this forum since 2009. Just found this video after searching for some Kevin Durant High school highlights.

Kid already has the shooting skills, and shot blocking ability. Just needs to gain some weight in his mid teens.

Must be a typo graphical error. He's now listed at 6'5". He was measured at 6'4" last year without shoes.

Are you serious? 2009?
Isn't that like age 14-13 for him?

I'm not from the USA,
And I rarely hear about players until they reach college, and even then it's on March.

Kinda amazing to think people recognize talent so early

Better range on his jumper than say, Tatum.. he has great range

But I'm not sold on his handle or that his crossover will be an effective one on the NBA level..

However, he appears incredibly quick - quicker than Tatum, so his handle could be more effective than Tatum because of that alone

Personally, I think it's all about Kuminga ay the end of the day, although Bates will be solid
