Andrew Wiggins is expected to be the first overall pick of the 2014 NBA Draft, but one question scouts may have is what his actual position is. Is the Kansas Jayhawks standout a shooting guard or small forward?

Standing at 6-foot-8, Wiggins has the ideal height to be considered a small forward. However, he is only 200 pounds. Going against the likes of LeBron James, who has a good 60-pound advantage on him, is going to be a problem unless Wiggins bulks up.

It's going to be interesting what team that lands Wiggins is going to do with him on whether he will play shooting guard or small forward in the starting lineup.

"He can play both (shooting guard or small forward), though most scouts have him slated as a two-guard at the next level. Really, position is about what you can guard. Offenses vary in the NBA. Wiggins can guard NBA two and threes no problem. Reminds me of Paul George that way," writes ESPN's Chad Ford.

Ford is right on the money with that comparison.

In George's first few years with the team, he played shooting guard since Danny Granger was the starting small forward on the Indiana Pacers.

The Pacers actually had a great advantage on defense with that lineup, since a 6-foot-8 George guarding shooting guards who are all generally shorter than him caused problems for opposing teams.

Once Granger went down and George filled in for him, his transition to the small forward position was very natural and smooth.

Expect to see much of the same regarding Wiggins once he hits the NBA scene.
