The 19-year-old is one of the brightest prospects in NBA Draft 2020.

The moment James Wiseman has been waiting for is just a few hours away as the former Memphis centre is all set for his career-defining NBA Draft.

James Wiseman, who has been widely touted to be one of the top three prospects this year, said he will be grateful for any team that picks him but couldn’t hide his excitement at the prospect of sharing the locker room with the Splash Brothers Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

He said, "It would create an extra push in terms of my maturity as a basketball player. Learning under Steph and Klay would be a great situation for me to be in."

Warriors have the second pick after finishing last season with the worst record in NBA. James Wiseman remarked, "They talked about my contribution to a team, what I will bring and how I would affect the team with my abilities and talked about my character off the court. They asked me questions on if I would be willing to go in there and work my tail off, which I will."

"The Warriors have won a lot of championships, so just being there in that type of tradition, being there in that type of environment will be great for me. I just want to win as many NBA championships as possible. I don’t have anything else on my list."

With the potential to make an impact at both ends of the court, Wiseman is eager to learn as much as possible while being with any team in the NBA. "I’m going to put my full effort, have fun and try to get better," he concluded.
