James Wiseman has withdrawn his lawsuit against the NCAA, indicating a settlement could be in the works.

Wiseman and his legal team filed a notice of voluntary nonsuit Thursday in a show of good faith toward the NCAA just days before a hearing in Shelby County Chancery court was scheduled for Nov. 18.

The firms representing Wiseman, Ballin, Ballin and Fishman, as well as Farese, Farese and Farese, issued a statement: “It has become clear to Mr. Wiseman that the lawsuit he filed last week has become an impediment to the University of Memphis in its efforts to reach a fair and equitable resolution with the NCAA concerning his eligibility status.
