The 23-year-old Cleveland big man has shown potential during his three-year stint in the NBA.
Zizic came into the league when he was 21 years old and was on the LeBron James-led Cavaliers. Shooting 73% from the field his rookie season, Zizic played well when the Cavs were in the spotlight.
A 6-foot-10 center, Zizic would bring much-needed size to a relatively small Warriors’ frontcourt. Last season, in 59 games and 25 starts, Zizic averaged 7.8 points per game on 55.3% from the field.
While there’s no telling what Zizic could be in the Golden State Warriors system, he certainly doesn’t have star upside like Johnson or other targets could. He does have a valuable ability to be productive and efficient, something the Warriors should crave.
The Dubs have depth at most positions, but in a frontcourt with Marquese Chriss and Kevon Looney, they could use a Zizic-like player.
