Wagner has worked out for the Utah Jazz and Oklahoma City Thunder. He has met with the Detroit Pistons, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Portland Trailblazers. On Thursday, Wagner scored 13 points for Team 1 at the NBA Draft Combine.

The 6-foot-11, 240-pound athlete from Berlin, Germany played in 20 games for Michigan in the 2016-17 season. He averaged 11.9 points, 0.5 assists, and 3.6 rebounds per game for the Wolverines. Wagner shot 58.6 percent from the field, 44.6 percent from three-point range, and 74.1 percent from the free throw line.

In the 2015 class, Wagner was ranked No. 118, according to the 247Sports Composite. He was the 31st-best power forward and the No. 1 ranked player from Berlin.

Wagner, along with Michigan power forward D.J. Wilson, have until May 24th to withdrawal from the 2017 NBA Draft.
