No, Wiseman is a project and was only 19 years old 2 years ago with a ceiling that is leaps and bounds above Looney's, super star potential. He was never going to be a starter out of the gate on a champion pedigree kind of team like that but still played more than Looney when he was on the floor, and was vastly outplaying him. He was supposed to be the anchor for the next generation of GSW teams. I mean he was the 2nd pick overall, you don't typically give up on that type of an investment this quick, especially for a guy you could have just signed instead. Maybe they think he's just too injury prone or there's something with his attitude I dunno. Looks like the deal is going to fall through anyway, Payton couldn't pass his physical.
Problem with Wiseman is he’s clueless defensively on the court. Zero defensive awareness and a sieve on defense. Yes he’s young but not a good sign that the Warriors gave up after burning a 2nd overall pick on him.
