James Wiseman was lauded as one of the best prospects going into the 2020 NBA Draft. He averaged 11.5 PPG and 5.8 RPG during his first season with the Golden State Warriors. Those stats came in only 21.4 MPG, and he showed great flashes of his athleticism and shooting ability.
Klay Thompson has recently lauded James Wiseman when speaking to the media and claimed that he is the future of the Warriors franchise. Thompson also added that he "can't wait" to play with the young center. The Golden State Warriors have lacked a dominant center during their dynasty, and if Wiseman develops as intended, he could fill that void. Alex Espinoza of 95.7 The Game relayed Thompson's words.
