2016 NBA Draft: New York Knicks Should Target These Second Round Prospects

Wayne Selden, SG, Kansas Jayhawks

  • 21 yrs. old
  • 6’6″, 232 lbs.

Wayne Selden was a star recruit at Kansas, beginning his career with much fanfare alongside Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid.

He never really lived up to the hype in college, and now his stock is hurting due to a recent knee injury that kept him out of action at the draft combine.

Selden’s three-point percentage went up each season he was at Kansas, making him a 36.6 percent career shooter from beyond the arc. 45.7% of his career college attempts were threes, preparing him for a career in the NBA as a role player.


His freakish 6’10.5″ wingspan and 230 pound frame gives him the physical tools to develop into a good defender.
