James Wiseman Unlikely To Have Draft Stock Significantly Impacted If He's Out For 19-20 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Nov 15, 2019 7:26 pm

James Wiseman could be forced to sit out the remainder of his freshman season at Memphis due to eligibility issues, but NBA executives don't believe it will have a dramatic impact on his draft stock.


“Will him sitting the year impact him a spot or two? Maybe,” one high-ranking team official said. “But it isn’t impacting his financial base. He is known as a talent.”


Wiseman is widely considered the best big man in 2020 NBA Draft and has been a candidate to be selected first overall.


Sources tell The Athletic that Memphis is optimistic Wiseman will miss fewer than nine games. Wiseman intends to re-file his lawsuit against the NCAA and Memphis if his season is not saved.

This guy is considered by some to be AD lite but he is a true 7 footer maybe even 7'1" and his weight is suppose to already be 240.
He could end up being a AD 2.0. His draft stock will not go down unless he truly doesn't know how to play. Not!!
Look for him to go 1-3 easily.

If he doesn’t get reinstated he’ll go to the Australian NBL under the Next Starts program like Ball and Hampton. He could very well solidify his draft stock all the while getting paid as well.
