What They're Saying ...

"Working in his favor long-term is his massive, well-built frame that creates some floor in terms of defensive impact, combined with solid if not truly elite mobility for a 7-footer. If all goes well, Wiseman should be a reliable double-double guy, provide vertical spacing rim-to-rim and offer some backbone around the basket." – Jeremy Woo, Sports Illustrated

"Wiseman is simply too physically gifted to ignore in a draft lacking top-end talent. And if things break correctly, he could prove to be a franchise center and overwhelming presence for at least the next decade." – Gary Parrish, CBS Sports

"It was clear that he’s different than just about everyone else. He’s a legit 7-foot-1, runs the floor extremely well and can be an impact guy on the defensive end due to his ability to rebound and block/alter shots." – Jeff Goodman, Stadium

"There’s a need for depth/talent in the middle that can be addressed by picking Wiseman. He isn’t a true face-up big at this point in his career, but given the shooters that the Warriors have that won’t be a big deal at all." – Raphielle Johnson, Rotoworld
