   Wildly Unnecessarily Lengthy 2014 NBA Draft Board, Part 2: NCAA Shooting Guards
2014-06-17

Neither of them seems to be particularly enjoying this.

C.J. Wilcox, Washington, Senior, 6'6 210lbs

2013/14 stats: 34.9 mpg, 11.5 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 2.5 apg, 1.0 spg, 1.0 bpg, 2.3 fpg, 1.7 TOpg, 45.3% FG, 39.1% 3PT, 87.3% FT

Wilcox is best as a shooter. The majority of his offense comes from the three point line, and although he's an excellent shooter from the foul line, he rarely gets there. This is in spite of having a tempting combination of good size and great length. Wilcox absolutely has the frame and body type of an NBA wing, and he has the game to fit the oft-coveted three-and-D role.

Be it off the catch or off of screens, Wilcox is a good jump shooter, aided further by a decent pull-up shot when asked to create. He is not a primary or secondary offensive creator, lacking much in the way of a handle and distinctly better playing off the ball, and with the quick-release jump shot being his main tool. That said, Wilcox has developed slightly during his career as a Husky at driving to the basket, and finishing once he gets there. He still does not excel at either and still avoids contact at the rim, yet his finishing, which was once a distinct weakness, really improved as an upperclassman. Wilcox exhibits a decent left hand despite being right handed, preferring to both drive and finish that way, and has improved his ability to change direction and find gaps.

Questions lie around Wilcox's ability to defend his position at the NBA level, and whether he can gain any separation for his shot. Despite the blocked shots numbers born out of his tremendous wingspan and decent motor, Wilcox has already had trouble keeping players in front on the perimeter, and for all his length, he is not especially quick nor athletic. That also affects his ability to get separation - outside of catches off of kick-outs and transition play, Wilcox does not consistently get himself open looks, hence the rather low scoring output in rather large minutes.

Wilcox shone as a role player through efficiency, discipline, playing within his limitations, contributing in multiple facets and excelling at one. This is precisely what the NBA needs him to do too. But it's not an automatic transition.
