2. Inefficiency

Now let’s get to the on-court stuff. Andrew Wiggins has been one of the least efficient offensive players in the NBA throughout his career, regularly taking long-twos and not making them at a particularly proficient rate.

The philosophy Rosas brought from Houston changed Wiggins’ shot balance this year, trading most of his 10-to-16 foot 2-point attempts for attempts from beyond the arc. But he has never become even an average 3-point shooter, so those aren’t particularly efficient shots for him either.
