Early dunk of the season goes to... Franz Wagner? Yes. Yes it does.
Let Franz Wagner dunk.
Wagner, the No. 8 pick in the most recent NBA Draft — selected because of his defense and potential as a 3&D wing — has more hops than any of us thought. Having a breakout night with 28 points, Wagner capped it off with this huge dunk over half the Timberwolves.
Wagner had played well for a rookie to start this season, starting every game for the Magic and averaging 13.9 points a game coming into Monday. He was showing some potential with a young and developing Orlando roster.
But nobody knew Wagner had this in him.
