Scouting Report

OVERVIEW
Wiley entered Auburn in 2016 as a recruiting coup. Rated 16th in his prep class by Rivals, the powerful big man not only had been a state MVP in Alabama but also a gold medalist for Team USA at the 2016 U17 World Championships. But his Auburn career was a disappointment, as it will be remembered more for injuries and being forced to sit out the 2018 season in a recruiting scandal than anything he did on the court.
Wiley's junior season was a disaster. He demonstrated an ability to block shots (37 in 29 games), but never showed any offensive skill outside five feet and finished the season with 14 straight no-double performances. His strength was an ability to draw fouls, which only magnified one of his greatest weaknesses -- an inability to make foul shots (52.5% for his career).
ANALYSIS
It used to be that the NBA wouldn't think twice about drafting a 6-foot-10, 260-pounder with a 7-5 wingspan and 9-3 standing reach. But these days, those measurables usually have to be tied with either an offensive or defensive ability on the perimeter, and Wiley offers neither.
Wiley's draft stock has been on serious decline in recent weeks as teams have watched Marc Gasol and DeMarcus Cousins, two players with Wiley-type bodies, step outside the 3-point line comfortably as both shooters and passers. There aren't a lot of teams looking for land-locked big men who foul a lot and can't make free throws.
