What Wiseman's Warriors rookie contract will look like


The Warriors selected James Wiseman with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft on Wednesday night, adding a player who figures to be a significant part of the franchise's present and future.

Wiseman, 19, likely will slide right into Golden State's starting lineup on Day 1. At 7-foot-1 and 245 pounds, he offers a combination of size and athleticism that the Warriors currently lack at the center position.

And as the No. 2 pick, Wiseman is set to sign a four-year contract worth up to $39.6 million, of which $18 million is guaranteed.

The final two years of Wiseman's rookie contract will be team options, which the Warriors are certain to pick up.
