Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green hasn't seen much of James Wiseman after the latter withdrew from school partway through his suspension from the NCAA.

The former Memphis big man only suited up in three games during his freshman year, but Green is intrigued by Wiseman's skill set and his potential fit within the Warriors' scheme.

"I've seen some clips of his workouts and a couple highlights, and he looks to be pretty mobile, a pretty athletic guy," Green said Tuesday on ESPN's "Jalen and Jacoby." "So, with our speed and pace, the way we play, I think he can definitely be a great add, if that was the case."

Wiseman was suspended for 12 games after the NCAA found that Tigers head coach Penny Hardaway provided Wiseman and his family with $11,500 to help facilitate their move to Memphis from Nashville.

The 7-foot-1 center was last year's top-ranked high school recruit and impressed during his brief spell in college, averaging 19.7 points, 10.7 boards, and three blocks.

Golden State posted a league-worst 15-50 record this past season and has a 14% chance to land the No. 1 overall pick. The club has already spoken with multiple draft prospects on Zoom, including Wiseman and LaMelo Ball, according to The Athletic's Anthony Slater.

Ball and fellow guard Anthony Edwards are among the other names receiving consideration for the top selection, but neither appears to be a clear fit with the Warriors' star-studded backcourt of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
