From Pick 30 to 1: Re-Drafting the 2022 NBA Draft

29. Blake Wesley — Houston Rockets (by way of MEM via MIN)

2022 Stats: 5.0 PPG, 2.2 RPG, 38.5-percent from 3

Original Draft Slot: 25th Overall (1st Round)

The 20-year-old out of Notre Dame did shoot nearly 39-percent from 3 on the year. That facet is quite encouraging. However, Wesley also shot 32.1-percent from the field. Not so encouraging.

At this point in the draft, Houston will take a young player with possible upside. The three-point stats help Wesley, and the fact he’s considered to be an above-average defensive player on the wing should also solidify his spot in the first round. If the athletic Wesley can stay healthy, Houston may be getting a steal here.
