Western Michigan Broncos. Thomas Wilder. 3. player. 45. . Point Guard

As you can see in the above photo, Wilder is no stranger to the outside shot. Last season, he took just over threes per game, finishing with a 44%. As we mentioned with Aaron Holiday, shooting is one of the key factors the Bulls must consider when drafting at any position this upcoming draft. It’s a real possibility they already have a potential sharpshooter in Lauri Markkanen, but he is a big man, and it would help even more if they had a guard who could create space.

Out of all the point guards on this list, Thomas Wilder will likely be the least known. Playing for the Western Michigan Broncos will do that to any player, but being a senior for the upcoming season, all eyes will be on him.

He is no question the favorite for the Player of the Year award in the MAC conference. Winning a POY award will certainly get Wilder looked at once the NBA Draft comes around, as would a potential NCAA tournament run.

Not only did he lead the MAC in 3 point shooting, he also finished top ten in assists and steals, fourth in scoring, and third in Assist-Turnover ratio. Look for another huge year out of the best prospect Western Michigan has ever put on a court.
