The Wiz Will Buy Picks

2

The Wiz Will Buy Picks: The one thing Wizards fans can take solace in is new owner Ted Leonsis loves draft picks. The Wizards currently hold the #1, the #30 and the #35 picks in the 2010 NBA Draft. Team president Ernie Grunfeld has told more than a few agents he has the green light to move around the draft if he wants to, and buying picks out for cash has already been approved. Sources near the situation say Grunfeld has one more year to get the Wizards moving in the right direction or he'll be replaced next summer. This draft and the impending free agency is important to Ernie's job security and as a result some insiders believe he Wizards could be extremely active on draft night, a role usually played by the Portland Trail Blazers. The Wizards have six players that will likely be under contract next season, meaning they need a minimum of seven players between the draft and free agency. With John Wall being the centerpiece of the Wizards draft plan, surrounding him with a few of his peers in this class looks likely. Sources close to the situation say the Wizards could look to load up Oklahoma City style, in what most experts' belief to be a very deep draft in terms of roster level players that could be available in the bottom of the first round or the early parts of the second. Look for the Wizards to be a bit busier than normal; Ernie Grunfeld's job depends on it.
