How did Wiseman perform in game two of the G League assignment appeared in the original NBC Sports Bayara
Warriors decided not to bring James Wiseman to New Orleans for their game against the Pelicans on Monday night, and opted to let him stay with Santa Cruz to continue his G-League stint.
While the short-handed Warriors were blown away by the Pelicans, Wiseman helped the Sea Dubs beat the Salt Lake City Stars 120-104 at Maverik Center in Utah.
Weisman finished with 15 points, 11 rebounds, and two rebounds in 23 minutes.
The former #2 draft pick went 7-of-10 from the field and made only 3 career points. He committed five turnovers, was whistled on three fouls and was the team’s worst minus 7.
Wiseman threw a pair of dunks, including an alley ooop after putting up the screen and rolling to the basket.
The Warriors faced the Pelicans on the second night back-to-back and rested Steve Curry, Clay ThompsonAnd the Draymond Green And the Andrew Wiggins. They called up rookies Patrick Baldwin Jr. and Ryan Rollins from Santa Cruz, which led to Steve Kerr being asked questions about it Why didn’t Wiseman join them?.
“The training is the important thing,” Kerr told reporters in New Orleans before Monday’s game. “When you get individual attention like the guys in the G league it’s easier to make more progress, I think, than the stop-and-start that happens during the NBA season when you’re not in rotation.”
The Warriors have a plan for Wiseman and aren’t holding back on it, even if he could play a good amount of minutes against the Pelicans. His development and building a solid foundation are the two main goals at the moment, and he would not have been able to do that if he had traveled to New Orleans to play one game.
