DAL Shooting Guard: 6’5, 220 lbs; 9th year, Marquette 

NBA Role: two-way wing Star UnderDOG

One of the hardest working two-way players in the Association, Wesley Matthews seems to add something new every single year; earned a reputation as a lockdown defender early on – at 6’5, Wes is a bit undersized but he gets into a low stance & has a strong upper body*  reaffirmed his stopper status his second year in DAL; 14-18 points/night scorer: Wes lights it up from beyond the arc w/ a flurry of arrows: quick draws, long wind-ups, a deadly shot after taking a step back – gets hot from outside (when Wes is locked in, he goes full Oliver Queen and slings back-breaking arrows from downtown); good post player; after fully recovering from his Achilles’ tear, Wes is back on track as an underrated, two-way wing – will that narrative stay the same or can Matthews make a leap into stardom at some point?
