Troy Weaver Rumors
James Edwards III: Weaver said Kevin Knox was one of the best free-agent interviews he’s ever had. Said he took accountability for his time in New York. “He was probably our hardest worker.”
Omari Sanfoka II: Troy Weaver said James Wiseman won’t play tonight. Still has to pass his physical. “We’re at the mercy of the rules and regulations on that.”
James Edwards III: Troy Weaver on the start to Wiseman’s career/upside potential: “It’s simple: during the evaluation process of a player, you look for certain things. He has all of the ingredients that we look for in a person first and then, as a player, has tremendous upside.”
James Edwards III: Weaver said what happened with Wiseman in Golden State wasn’t his fault or the Warriors’ fault. It was circumstances. “When he became available, it changed things for me. We think we can unlock him here.”
Troy Weaver has long been a big fan of James Wiseman. The 7-foot Memphis alumnus sat atop Detroit’s draft board in 2020, and the Warriors pounced on him well before he fell to the Pistons at seven. On paper, Wiseman was supposed to give Golden State the size and athleticism at center it had lacked during its championship era. But as the trade has made clear, that didn’t happen.
