Articles about Jamil Wilson

June 18, 2014

Presented without comment.

Jamil Wilson, Marquette, Senior, 6'7 230lbs

2013/14 stats: 28.9 mpg, 11.7 ppg, 5.9 rpg, 2.6 apg, 0.6 spg, 0.5 bpg, 1.9 TOpg, 2.9 fpg, 42.8% FG, 32.7% 3PT, 67.0% FT

If it's not too absurd of a thing to day, a big problem with Wilson's game is that he does a bit of everything, but not a lot of anything. A good sized wing with a good wingspan, decent strength and good athleticism, Wilson has no stand-out facets to his game, which does not make a prognosis easy.

Offensively, Wilson is not a high volume or high efficiency jump shooter, perhaps in part due to falling away when he doesn't need to and taking the occasional bad shot. Nevertheless, he is a decent threat in catch-and-shoot situations, and although he is not a good shooter off of the dribble, he at least knows mostly not to try. Wilson's jump shot also comes in handy when in the low post, where he occasionally finds himself, utilising a turnaround jump shot as the primary weapon but also countering off of that with a step-under.

Outside of that, Wilson is largely only a straight line driver and off-ball cutter, without much in the way of a nuanced handle. His offensive game is trending towards the outside - he wants to be a shooter, it seems, and maybe he'll be one if he stops falling away unnecessarily and utilises better jump shot selection - and while his versatility and talent level is a weapon, his mindset is that of a role player. Defensively, Wilson's physical tools, wiry strength and discipline get him some deflections and blocks, but he struggles to defend the post, projecting best on this end as a good rebounding three rather than a small four.

From an NBA point of view, an athletic good sized wing with some versatility and a decent IQ is a good starting point. It is fine if his mindset and skillset are those of a role player, because that is what he would be at the NBA level. But he needs to excel either from the perimeter, defensively, or both.
