We need to think short term in my opinion and I believe Howard makes more of an impact sooner where we would probably have to wait on Wiseman.
I'd draft Wiseman if there's nothing going for the team aka re-build phase. But, this isn't a re-building team.
I don't think it's either-or. Just because you're not rebuilding doesn't mean you can't look to the future. Seems like it should be possible to get help now, whether Dwight (not my choice) or someone else, and still prepare for the future. Now, if they think Wiseman is going to flame out that's one thing, but I think they should still look for someone in the draft that they think they can build around down the line.
True, but I'm sure Coach Kerr will run his offense how he's always has with his core. It's unfortunate we never really got to see a true center like DeMarcus Cousins implemented into his offensive system.
If Wiseman was a once-in-a-lifetime talent like a Hakeem Olajuwon, David Robinson, or Tim Duncan, you don't hesitate to draft him because he'd be a guaranteed at least 20ppg, 10ppg, and 2 bpg type player, instantly. I don't see that with Wiseman. Wiseman is a fine player, but he'll take some time to polish and develop his offensive game (aka project) and learn how to be inserted into their gameplan. And I don't think Curry, Thompson, and Green has time for him to learn the ropes of a center. So, he'll just be there for defense, rebounding, shot-blocking, pick-n-roll, and rim-running until those guys are really on the downside of their careers.
The very makeup of this team is predicated on the 3 principles: passing, shooting, and defend. If we want this team to be a well-oiled machine for the next 8-10 years based on that, the team needs to keep finding and adding players who have any of those elite skills. And I think Deni Avdija is our guy. Don't think he'll be an Allstar (Maybe decent starter), but at least keeps us competitive. His weaknesses will improve over time.
