We have no idea what Allen is going to make for the next three years, but at the minimum Wiseman is going to make between 1/2 to almost 1/3 as much salary. Wiseman is 3 years younger and was a super highly rated prospect. I feel like he fits the timeline of our team much better. His 3 numbers are promising, but he's only attempting 1 per game. I would bet on him being at least as good as Allen within a year or two.
He is a rim protector for sure and his offensive skill is better than most bigs in a vacuum but he really cant utilize it yet on the pro level consistently and he may never be given the full green light to do so without improving his decision making a lot where a lot of what you are hoping will materialize wont happen anyway.
He could become another Embiid level player once stronger I guess so there is that but if anything he is the opposite of JFro in the way Wiseman has always been criticized for trying to do to much and without much success pre NBA sans a high block rate against small offenses . Imo ompared to Allen who lets the game come to him and is the ultimate reliable complimentary big there really is more to like about JFro taking a reasonable deal than waiting for Wiseman to discover what he can and cannot do in the NBA for 3 years.
