Ethan Happ Stats

Ethan Happ was a work horse for the Wisconsin Badgers, starting all 139 games of his collegiate career across four seasons in Madison. The redshirt senior never finished a season shooting less than 53 percent from the floor, averaging a .549 field goal percentage over his career.

Happ finished his collegiate career averaging 15.3 points per game (PPG), 8.8 rebounds per game (RPG), 3.0 assists per game (APG), 1.6 steals per game (SPG) and 1.1 blocks per game (BPG). Despite his 6-foot-10, 237-pound frame, he has great hands and vision for a big man. Happ improved his season-long APG in each season, leading the team in steals and rebounds in all four of his seasons with Wisconsin as well.

Happ has made a living in the paint, so much so that this aspect of his game has evolved into both the defining asset and concern with his potential at the next level. Happ's biggest drawback is his abysmal shooting range, as the Badgers' forward rarely took a shot beyond five feet from the rim. Happ attempted only 16 3-pointers in his four-year career, sinking just one of them for a career .063 shooting percentage beyond the arc.

Ethan Happ NBA Draft Predictions

Boston Celtics (No. 51), Utah Jazz (No. 53)

The Boston Celtics likely have much bigger future roster concerns on their mind than which prospects they're going to draft with their 14th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, but Happ could be a perfect fit in Brad Stevens' more calculated system. If there's one thing most Wisconsin basketball products are known for, it's being coached up to compete against superior talent through fundamentals and consistency; two things that could play well for a Stevens-led Celtics team.

The Utah Jazz are another candidate likely searching for some younger paint presence with the No. 53 overall pick. Rudy Gobert is one of the best centers in the game, but Ekpe Udoh is now an unrestricted free agent and Derrick Favors is only under contract in Utah through next season. The Jazz could pull the trigger on a player like Happ with hopes of developing him into a complimentary player with great vision behind Gobert.
