The Golden State Warriors are ready to enter the lottery and they already have players trying to sell themselves to the Dubs, one of the best teams to have a lottery pick this year. Contrary to the rest of the teams, the Warriors are set to be back in contention the next campaign and that obviously attracts talent. They have the best backcourt in the league, too, so all those factors make the Warriors a very interesting destination for any player entering the draft.
One of those players is James Wiseman, expected to be a top 5 pick in the upcoming 2020 NBA draft. Wiseman is trying to make his case and he recently claimed he would be a good fit for the Warriors. During a recent appearance on ESPN’s The Jump, Wiseman explained why he would be great alongside Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
“I feel like that’s a great fit,” Wiseman said Wednesday, via Joseph Cervantes of Clutch Points. “I feel like playing with veteran players like them can help me develop my game quickly, but I can also just learn from them because they’ve been in the league for a really long time, so just me being under their wings will be really great.”
This year’s draft will feature good players only for the top 5 picks, according to experts. Wiseman is one of those. Players like LaMelo Ball and Anthony Edwards have also been linked with the Dubs, so it’s unclear which one is going to end up in the Bay.
Wiseman seems very excited about his chances to go to San Francisco, but only time will tell if the Warriors draft him. The 2020 NBA Draft lottery is taking place on August 20th.
