How James Wiseman fared in the eighth G League assignment game in Santa Cruz

James Wiseman continues to fill the stat sheet in the G League.

The former No. 2 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft played a big role in the Santa Cruz Warriors’ 111-100 victory over the South Bay Lakers on Friday at Kaiser Permanente Arena.

The 21-year-old played 27 minutes and recorded a double-double with 24 points and 10 rebounds against the G League affiliate of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Wiseman went 9-for-10 from the floor, and nine of his 10 rebounds came on defense. Additionally, the 7-foot center was a plus-29 when on the court in Santa Cruz.

Only Ryan Rollins had a higher plus/minus rating at plus-32 to go along with his triple-double of 22 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.

However, the former University of Memphis star was a presence in the paint, both rebounding the ball and providing power shots.

Entering Santa Cruz’s game against South Bay, Wiseman was averaging 15.6 points and 10.1 rebounds per game. While the Warriors big man could translate his entire offense from the G League to the NBA, he needs to bring energy and attention to the small details.

Santa Cruz’s next game is against the Oklahoma City Blue on Sunday at Kaiser Permanente Arena.
