Know the prospect: Moritz Wagner

Being a big man is hard. Shooting is a necessary skill, but even that alone isn’t enough (see: Anderson, Ryan). Bigs need to have the ability to make plays when run off the line and can’t be a defensive liability to the point they’re targeted like the weakest kid in gym class every time down the floor.

In the second round it’s difficult to find bigs with such a rounded skill set, but one such option who may be available to the Knicks with the 36th pick is Moritz Wagner.
