I have overlooked Wiltjer this whole season, but that stops now. He is the definition of a stretch four. Great scorer and shoots the long ball very well. Wiltjer stands tall at 6’10 and weighs in at about 240 lbs. Great rebounder, but his offensive game is very finesse. I would love to see him become more aggressive when attacking the basket. Weakest part of his overall game is his defense. He’s an average defender in the post does move his feet better than average. I’d compare him to a VERY raw Dirk Nowitzki. Wiltjer could hit that level if he adds more to his post moves.
