If the Warriors keep Wiseman, I expect them to trade at least one of their potential lottery picks in this draft to pick up a veteran forward. Mostly, that’s because Wiseman, who only played a handful of college games and then due to the pandemic didn’t get a Summer League or a real training camp, still pretty much counts as a rookie going into next season’s camp. And they don’t need to overload with youngsters when they’re already waiting for Wiseman.
Wiseman addressed those comments made by Myers with Marc Spears of The Undefeated in the second installment of his rookie diary. He explained that the statement has given him even more confidence, something that will only drive him even more. “When Bob clarified to the news reporters that he wasn’t going totrade me, it gave me a lot of confidence within myself,” Wiseman said. “It’s just the fact that I’ve had confidence in myself that I know I’m capable of. The crazy thing about that is and they had to tell me about that because it drives me. It fuels me to keep going and just work even harder.”
As he rose for a dunk against the Houston Rockets, Wiseman meant to use his right hand but the lefty rose with his strong hand at an awkward angle. He was blocked by Kenyon Martin Jr. in the second quarter, and came down at an even more awkward angle. It was later determined Wiseman sustained a season-ending right meniscus injury. “It’s kind of hard, I was really down,” Wiseman said in his latest video diary for The Undefeated. “I can say that I was crying a lot. Yeah, it was bad. My mom had to actually tell me everything was gonna be all right. “But I got a great family support system. Really, just me mentally, I’m very strong as a human being. So, I just got through it naturally.”
