1. Aaron Wiggins

At this point, it should go without saying that Aaron Wiggins is a player that needs to see more action within the Thunder's rotation.

Currently in his third season in the association, the former 55 overall selection finds himself logging the fewest minutes averages of his career (14.5) yet, in many ways, if producing at his highest efficiency rates.

Per 100 possessions, the two guard is putting up all-time bests virtually across the board, boasting averages of 20.8 points, 7.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists, and 1.9 steals all while shooting a whopping 57.1 percent from the field and 50.5 percent from distance.

The beauty of Wiggins' game is that he doesn't require the ball in his hands to be effective.

In fact, he's best used as an off-ball contributor within the rotation next to predominant handlers and facilitators like SGA, as he owns an electrifying effective field goal percentage of 74.1 on catch-and-shoot attempts through 58 games played.

Defensively, he's an absolutely lethal prospect thanks to his lateral quickness and ridiculous 6-foot-10 wingspan that allows him to be quite versatile on the less glamorous side of the ball.

Over the last 21 games we've seen Wiggins' playing time averages raise to roughly 18 minutes a night, which is a solid range for him to be in. Moving forward, he deserves to continue on with this uptick in usage.
