Former USC forward Eric Wise Eligible for NBA D-League Draft

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Former USC forward Eric Wise is one of more than 180 participants eligible for the NBA D-League Draft.

Wise played three years at UC Irvine, before transferring to USC for his final year of eligibility. He ranks 11th on UC Irvine's all-time list in points (1,280) and 15th in rebounds (533), and became the 15th player in school history to register 1,000 or more points and 500 or more career rebounds.

As a Trojan, the 6-foot-6 forward played one season under Kevin O'Neill and Bob Cantu, averaging 11.9 points and 5.7 rebounds on 45.5 percent field goals.

Wise is also one of several notable Pac-12 alumni that are eligible to be drafted in the draft, which will take place on Friday, Nov. 1 at 7 p.m ET. Arizona's Salim Stoudamire, Kevin Parrom and Grant Jerrett, Oregon's Joevan Catron and Washington's Abdul Gaddy headline the list of former Pac-12 players.
