After tearing his meniscus and having some complications prior to getting on the court earlier in the season, second-year center James Wiseman is looking primed to make his season debut for the Golden State Warriors in the near future.
Wiseman has reportedly bulked up and could showcase a new array of talents, improvements that could make the Warriors feel better about taking him over the likes of LaMelo Ball.
The Golden State Warriors drafted James Wiseman with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, and it may soon be time to cash in on his value.
Wiseman was an integral part of the Warriors’ game plan as a rookie. With Klay Thompson out, the Warriors didn’t have much purpose, clearly not having that NBA Finals ceiling. Two-time MVP Stephen Curry still carried the Dubs to the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference.
The Warriors did lose two straight games in the play-in tournament though and ended up not making the actual playoffs. That’s stigma has changed this season.
After a lengthy rehab amid his first NBA offseason, Wiseman has already missed over half of the season and is already having his ability to impact a championship-contending team drawn into question.
That said, this offseason, the Warriors could trade the big man. Let’s dive into 3 reasons why they should consider it.
