James Wiseman is widely considered a top-3 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, but he has yet to hear from the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Wolves own the top overall pick ahead of the Golden State Warriors and Charlotte Hornets.
“I haven’t [talked to the Timberwolves],” Wiseman said. “But I’ve been getting a lot of recommendations from them. In terms of talking to them, I haven’t.”
Wiseman believes the Warriors and Hornets are more favorable to his long-term growth, a source tells ESPN’s Jonathan Givony.
“I would feel good, whatever team that picks me, I’m truly grateful for that,” Wiseman said, when asked about the possibility that the Timberwolves select him even though the two sides haven’t been communicating. “Whatever team that picks me, I’m going to go in there, learn as much as possible, work my tail off, and just want to win.”
