The Warriors finally made it official and selected Memphis big man James Wiseman with the No. 2 overall pick in Wednesday's NBA draft.

Head coach Steve Kerr expressed his excitement for the selection, and believes Wiseman is "bursting with potential."

"We had a chance to watch him work out and have dinner with him a couple weeks ago," Kerr said. "He was so impressive, he's just bursting with potential. So, we're excited to get him, a lot of work ahead, but he's excited to be coming here, and we're excited to have him, and should be a great partnership."

Kerr and the Warriors likely are eager to get into training camp after such an extended layoff because of the coronavirus suspension of the 2019-20 season.
