  • Maurice Evans appears to be one of Robinson's biggest fans. In a radio interview, he said that he thinks the Wizards may have been better off without the No. 1 pick, because he's not sold on Anthony Davis' scoring ability. He later said Robinson would fit in great. [106.7 The Fan]
  • Despite this, Lee predicts the Wizards will take Bradley Beal. [Washington Post]
  • Another prediction that Beal will be the guy. [Washingtonian]
