A long swingman with outstanding physical tools, Damien Wilson is a dynamic athlete with a raw skill set and a lot of long-term upside. Possessing superb explosiveness and reactiveness, Wilson is capable of doing some intriguing things off the bounce despite still being at an early stage of development.

As far as his own offense goes, Wilson is very limited, not having a very reliable outside shot and lacking much in terms of advanced moves off the dribble. What he does have is incredible straight-line speed with the ball and the ability to effortlessly elevate around the rim, making him very dangerous in transition and on simple straight-line drives to the basket.

His first step is nothing short of outstanding and he's actually capable of going both left and right, capable of doing damage both in transition and in the half court. Things get dicey when he has to change direction, but if left unimpeded to the basket he finds himself at the rim in no time at all, showing no problems getting by anyone at this level.

Defensively, he does a good job using his length and speed crashing the passing lanes as a help defender, though his overall effort is just adequate, with him being nowhere near his potential on this side of the ball.

Looking forward, Wilson is still clearly very raw and will need to refine both his ball-handling and shooting to develop into an NBA prospect, but his physical tools are outstanding, making him an intriguing player to watch for the long term.
