The Warriors are sending James Wiseman to the G League for an extended period. The number two overall pick of the 2020 NBA Draft is not playing at the level that he is expected to.

He missed the entire 2021-2022 NBA season due to an injury and his return to the court is not going that well. This season Wiseman is averaging 7.3 points and 4 rebounds in 13.8 minutes of play.

According to Golden State’s young star Jordan Poole, going to the G League is not a demotion, but rather an opportunity to get more playing time and get a better feel for the game.

“I told him it’s not a demotion. It’s not a punishment,” Poole said, per Anthony Slater. “He’s going to go down there and shoot as many shots as he wants, get as many touches as he wants, work on as many moves as he wants.”
