Studied at the University of Michigan (2017-18 season) in college, averaging 27.6 minutes per game, scoring 14.6 points and 7.1 rebounds.
In the first round of the 2018 NBA Draft, he was selected by the Los Angeles Lakers with the 25th overall pick, starting the first stop of his NBA career. (2019-20 season) Wizards defeated the Timberwolves 137-116 away. Moritz Wagner came off the bench for 25 minutes and made 13 of 15 shots, including 4 three-pointers. He scored 30 points, 15 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal and 1 block efficiently.
Wagner is a German insider with a very stable long-range shot. His face-to-frame footwork is exquisite and proficient, but he lacks the advantage of wingspan on the defensive end, and his movement speed is also insufficient. He works hard to protect the basket, but his wingspan limits his influence on the basket. Wagner needs to maximize his defensive ability to adapt to high-intensity games.
