The 2019-2020 season finally came to an end, after almost a year from the start of the 2019-2020 regular season. Now, the teams are focusing on the NBA Draft, which will take place on Nov. 18.

With no clear-cut pick in the ‘upper floors’ of the draft boards, NBA teams could go with the safest options in the 2020 NBA Draft.

One of those options could be former Memphis center James Wiseman, who is considered one of the safest picks in the draft, as stated by several NBA executives, per Sam Vecenie of The Athletic.

(via CBS Sports):

Having talked to sources who have seen Wiseman work out in Miami, there is some real enthusiasm about his play. He’s looked dominant in workouts and in the runs with other high-level NBA Draft prospects. A lot of executives I’ve spoken with actually consider Wiseman to be among the safer players in the draft.

Wiseman arrived at the University of Memphis as a highly-touted recruit. He played three games in the NCAA, before dealing with eligibility issues.

The Tenesee product averaged 19.7 points, 10.3 rebounds and three blocks.
