The Warriors have picked up their fourth-year team option on center James Wiseman, as well as the third-year options on forward Jonathan Kuminga and shooting guard Moses Moody, per the NBA’s transactions log.James Wiseman

All three players will now have their contracts guaranteed for the 2023-24 season — with Wiseman to earn $12.1 million, and Kuminga to make $6 million and Moody $3.9 million.

Wiseman, 21, finally seems to be healthy after being selected with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. His first two years have been spoiled by knee injuries and other setbacks, limiting him to 46 games in that span.

Kuminga, 20, had a promising rookie season, appearing in 70 games and averaging 9.3 points and 3.3 rebounds. He is off to a slower start this year, though given his age, is clearly a part of the Warriors’ future. Kuminga was selected with the No. 7 pick in 2021, with Moody drafted seven spots later at No. 14.

Moody, 20, has actually seen his playing time increase this season, after averaging just less than 12 minutes a game as a rookie. Through the first seven games, he’s averaging 6.4 points and shooting 36 percent on 3-pointers.

Monday is the last day for teams to exercise rookie-scale options for the 2023-24 season, and the Warriors were the last team to make a decision.
