Wiseman leaves NCAA, will sign with an agent

Hardaway was considered a Memphis booster due to a million-dollar donation he made to the school years before taking the coaching gig.

Memphis center James Wiseman says he has withdrawn from school as the likely National Basketball Association lottery pick gets ready to begin his pro career.

The NCAA initially ruled Wiseman ineligible, but the Tigers elected to play him on the same night that ruling came about as a Shelby County judge issued a restraining order allowing him to take the court for the Tigers.

Wiseman announced his decision Thursday on his Instagram account.

Wiseman is a potential No. 1 pick.

With this news, Wiseman's NCAA career comes to a premature end but nobody can say that it wasn't a dominant one. Hardaway wasn't the head coach at Memphis at the time of the alleged 2017 'loan, ' but he was Wiseman's AAU coach. In three games, Wiseman averaged 19.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 3.0 blocks despite playing just 23 minutes per contest. He would have been eligible to return to action for the 11th-ranked Tigers (9-1) on January 12.
