James Wiseman officially hires agency to prepare for NBA Draft

James Wiseman

If there was any doubt about James Wiseman’s college future, it was settled on Friday.

Wiseman, the Memphis freshman who is expected to be a top NBA draft pick, has officially signed with Excel Sports for his NBA representation. This officially wipes out his NCAA eligibility.

This was the next logical step after Wiseman withdrew from Memphis just over a week ago. He doesn’t appear to have any plans to temporarily play overseas, and is just going to focus on being as ready as possible for the June draft. It’s risky, but teams are already well aware of him and what he can bring.

Wiseman’s eligibility had already been in question over money he received from coach Penny Hardaway to move to Memphis. He won’t face any further consequences as a result of that, but the school may well be paying for their decision to play Wiseman with questions about his eligibility for some time to come.
