Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Wesley was born March 16, 2003, in South Bend, Indiana. His father, Derrick Sr., was a two-time MVP for the Cardinals, finished his career as the school's third all-time leading scorer and was inducted into the Ball State Athletics Hall of Fame in 1998. Blake played for James Whitcomb Riley High School in South Bend, Indiana. He took a jump during his junior year when he averaged 26.0 points and 6.3 rebounds per game. In his senior season, Wesley averaged 27.1 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.5 steals per game, leading Riley to a 19-7 record and the Class 4A sectional title. He was named to the Indiana All-Star team and ranked as the No. 82 prospect by ESPN.com. On Nov. 20, 2020, he committed to playing college basketball for Notre Dame, choosing the Fighting Irish over offers from Creighton, Kansas State, Louisville, Maryland, Purdue and Xavier. Wesley had an immediate impact during his freshman season at Notre Dame, averaging 14.4 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per game. He shined during March Madness, where he helped Notre Dame put away Alabama in the first round of the NCAA Tournament with 18 points, which included a personal 6-0 run in the second half. His transition steal and break-away dunk would put the Irish up double digits for good late in the contest. He was nominated to the 2022 All-ACC Second Team. Eventually, this led him to be selected by the San Antonio Spurs with the 25th pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.

Draws rare start
GSan Antonio Spurs
April 12, 2024
Wesley is starting Friday's game against the Nuggets.
ANALYSIS
This marks Wesley's second start of the 2023-24 campaign, with his last dating back to Jan. 24 against the Thunder. He should get plenty of looks Friday due to the absence of Malaki Branham (concussion).

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Timid shooting
GSan Antonio Spurs
February 26, 2024
Wesley has attempted just 28 threes across 37 appearances this season, which marks a decline from the 52 threes he attempted at a 38.5 percent clip through 37 appearances last season.
ANALYSIS
Wesley is shooting 50.4 percent from the field on 3.2 shots per game this season, but his 14.3 percent three-point percentage shows stagnation in his leap to being an NBA floor spacer. Wesley has connected on 36.8 percent of 57 threes across 12 G League appearances this season, but his shooting has not translated to NBA relevancy yet.
See All NBA Rumors
2022 Fantasy Outlook
One of two guards selected in the first round of the 2022 NBA Draft by the Spurs, Wesley pieced together a decent run over his five Summer League appearances, averaging 17.0 points, 4.0 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 1.6 steals over 30.6 minutes. However, shooting efficiency certainly didn't turn heads in a good way. Wesley connected on just 30.0 percent of his 18 field goal attempts per contest and 34.4 percent from deep, efficiencies that won't gain him much favor. He'll have to improve on that number if he's going to claim a regular role in the rotation as a rookie, though his 30.3 percent conversion from beyond the arc as a freshman at Notre Dame doesn't inspire a ton of confidence. He will contend with fellow draftee Malaki Branham and second-year guard Joshua Primo to see backcourt minutes behind Tre Jones and Devin Vassell.
