Wilkes has the athleticism and length of an ideal NBA wing, but that hasn't necessarily translated into success on the floor. His team-high 17.4 points per contest and his second-team All-Pac-12 honors don't paint the whole picture of his sophomore campaign.
Wilkes' production in 2018-19 was nearly four points higher than the previous season, but he scored inefficiently, as both his field-goal and 3-point shooting percentages dropped. Still, he did impress at the combine and has potential.

What the analysts are saying
"Wilkes is a big, strong wing who has always passed the eye test but didn't make especially impressive strides at UCLA as either a 3-point shooter or a defender. That makes him, in essence, an above-average athlete who prefers to hunt shots over anything else." - Sports Illustrated's Jeremy Woo
"He's talented and has some physical talents with his body type and all that. I think there are some things to like there long term, but I think he's still trying to figure out how to be a complete basketball player." - ESPN's Jonathan Givony
