Rookie James Wiseman is beginning to see himself fit into a larger role with the Golden State Warriors. Just after having his worst performance in the previous game against the Western Conference front runners, the Los Angeles Lakers, the forward put up his best performance yet in a 121-99 win over the San Antonio Spurs.
Becoming acquainted with his new role, multiple veterans on the team are giving the 19-year-old pointers. After the big win on Wednesday night, Wiseman shared what he’s learned from his older teammates, specifically Draymond Green.
When Golden State drafted the young center No. 2 overall, the team had high expectations for him being that he only played three games during his collegiate career. Wiseman was added to the roster almost as a reaction to All-Star Klay Thompson’s Achilles injury right before the 2020 NBA Draft. Whether the Warriors made the right selection over LaMelo Ball is still in question, but the rookie center has had some impressive games during the season thus far, along with some not so impressive performances.
