MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WKYT) - Memphis freshman James Wiseman has left the school to prepare for the 2020 NBA Draft, the player announced on his Instagram.
Wiseman, a one-time UK recruit, is potentially the No. 1 pick in the draft.
The NCAA recently upheld its 12-game suspension of Wiseman after it was determined Memphis coach Penny Hardaway provided $11,500 to Wiseman’s family to help with moving expenses several years ago.
Reports indicate Wiseman will sign with an agent and begin preparing for the draft.
