1. James Wiseman (C – Memphis)
It’s hard to argue against the small sample size James Wiseman gave us in his three games at Memphis. Sure, he didn’t play against top tier competition, but his 19.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 3.0 blocks per game reassured us that this is the dominant prospect we thought he was coming out of high school.
Wiseman’s biggest weakness is that he hasn’t been able to compete. There isn’t enough information on him to predict how he will translate to the NBA level. His offensive game looks unpolished and his defensive impact can’t be measured yet.
The Golden State Warriors would be taking a risk-taking Wiseman high in the 2020 NBA Draft. However, he fits their need for a center while also being a prospect loaded with potential. Wiseman should be at the top of the Dubs wish list.
