Draymond Green, Stephen Curry want to help Andrew Wiggins ‘reach his promise’ with Warriors
Wiggins hasn’t lived up to being the No. 1 overall pick of his draft class despite his jaw-dropping athleticism and the fact that his points per game average is above 20.
As one of the leaders of the Warriors, Green says it’s his job to make Wiggins a better player moving forward:
“I take that upon myself as a leader on this team, one of the older guys,” Green told Anthony Slater of The Athletic. “I haven’t been in the league much longer than him, but I have a little more experience, a little older. I want to help him do that any way that I can. It’s the same for Steph. I think he fits in here perfectly. We want to help him reach his promise, whatever that is. We’ll figure it out.”
Andrew Wiggins is averaging 22.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.7 assists on the season while shooting 45.1 percent from the field, 34.1 percent from beyond the arc and 71.9 percent from the free-throw line. The new Warriors swingman will have three All-Star teammates next season once Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson suit up alongside Draymond Green.
Curry and Wiggins could still play together this season. Curry is reportedly targeting an early March return to the lineup.
The Warriors currently have the worst record in the NBA, as they currently sport a 12-43 slate.
