The Warriors used the second pick in the draft to select former Memphis center James Wiseman.
The selection reflects Golden State’s desire to add size this offseason to compete with the Lakers and the league’s other big teams. Wiseman has the build of a traditional center at 7’1″ and 240 pounds.
Scouts and college basketball fans only got a brief look at Wiseman during his three-game career at Memphis. After being embroiled in an eligibility battle with the NCAA, Wiseman left school in December to focus on preparing for the NBA. He was dominant in his brief time with the Tigers, averaging 19.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 3.0 blocks per game.
