Andrew Wiggins Draws Paul George Comparison From NBA Executive

Andrew Wiggins has been impressive to start his freshman season at Kansas, averaging 19 points and 5.5 rebounds per game.

Unlike Jabari Parker and Julius Randle, Wiggins has a smaller role in his offense at this point.

"I think he can be a player that plays a lot like Paul George does," one veteran NBA executive told ESPN.com. "He's so smooth that at times it almost looks like he's coasting. But when you watch closer, you just see the game comes so easy to him. With his length and explosiveness, he's going to be able to do whatever he wants once he gets it. And from everything we can gather in looking into his background, he's going to get it. I'm not sure how we could pass on him if we had the No. 1 pick. The other guys might be more ready right now, but in three years, I think he's the best player in this class."
