Franz Wagner Highlights
Franz Wagner Draft Profile
When you think of Franz Wagner let the first word that comes to mind be: versatile. Wagner is capable of stepping outside of the three-point arc and knocking down shots in catch-and-shoot situations. He also does not turn the ball over much making him a potential key piece to a team’s offensive system. Wagner is capable of providing a little bit of everything on both ends of the court even though he does not do anything at a particularly elite level. Ultimately, Wagner in the right system could be worth more than the sum of things he does well.
Wagner is by no means a player who relies on athletic ability. Wagner does not play above the rim and he rarely puts the ball on the floor to drive to the hoop. He lacks the ability to lose defenders with his ballhandling alone which limits his offensive repertoire.
