Wiseman reveals favorite play from first Warriors practice – NBC Sports Bay Area

James Wiseman on Monday participated in Warriors practice for the first time.

What was his best moment out there?

“Screening for Steph [Curry] — he made that 3,” Wiseman said Monday afternoon. “Which was dope.”

That’s a simple and awesome answer from the No. 2 overall pick in last month’s NBA draft.

Before Wiseman spoke to the media, Steve Kerr described a couple plays from Wiseman that impressed him.

“He made several great screens. He seems to be a very natural screen setter,” the Warriors’ coach said. “A couple screens and dives to the rim where he opened up wide-open shooters on the weak side.

“He did it twice in a row during our drill work.”

Any particular mistake that stood out to the rookie?

“I kind of missed a call on a defensive scheme, but I got back,” Wiseman explained. “I had huge energy so it really didn’t even seem like I made a mistake.

“Just trying to use my length and my athleticism.”

Wiseman will not play in the Warriors’ preseason game Tuesday night against the Kings, but Kerr left the door open for the 7-foot-1 center to suit up Thursday night in Sacramento.
