James Wiseman

Due to the Cavs’ unfavorable position, drafting Wiseman would lead to trading a key piece of their team – Andre Drummond. If they were to draft him he would become the Cavs’ defensive anchor, being a seven-foot great rim protector. Additionally, in limited action on offense in his time with the NCAA, he has displayed promising potential. He has shown his ability to pull up and knock down jumpers, and post up and finish at the rim. Playing with Darius Garland and Collin Sexton, who are both better with the ball in their hands, Wiseman’s ability to play off the ball is definitely enticing to the Cavs, knowing how they would want to focus on developing their young guards and Kevin Porter Jr.

The downsides to Wiseman include his inability to consistently shoot, shot selection and foul trouble. With his inability to shoot or get consistent shot selection, it could lead to low scoring and greatly inefficient stats, which he can fix with a bit of work and mentoring once he’s in the league. With his main offensive ability being on the low block, it would be beneficial to the Cavs to keep Kevin Love, at least until the trade deadline. Love could mentor Wiseman and let Wiseman control the paint, though he might clog it and draw defenders when players like Sexton and Garland drive to the whole. Generally, Wiseman would be a solid pick.
