That's right I think Isaiah Austin from Baylor should be thw Wizards main priority in the 2013 NBA Draft. With the NBA regular season coming to a close, and March Madness in the the forefront right now 'Prospect Watch' is in full effect, and I think Austin has the most potential and higher ceiling then any prospect in this class. Austin has a special and very unique skillset where he is 7'1 and has an uncanny ability the put the ball on the floor and spread the floor with NBA three-point range. He and his Baylor Bears underacheived this season so their currently playing in the NIT tourney but in a very impressive freshman season he has put averages of 13 points, and 8 rebounds. As I stated earlier Austin is 7'1 and you just cant teach that type of size, the biggest knock on him is his slight frame he is listed at 220 pounds which would make him 10 pounds lighter then Martell Webster. While Austin's stats dont jump out at you keep in mind he plays for Scott Drew who tends not to get the most out of his players i.e Perry Jones, but I just think his skillset is to great for us to pass up on. He is likely to be availiable at the end of the lottery where I see us picking, and with a nice stout fontcourt of Nene and Emeka Okafor I think Austin would be a nice complementary peice to the both of them. HERE is where I think Austin's biggest contribution to this team would be... his ability to stretch the floor. Imagine him as a pick and pop partner witrh John Wall and with his shooting to uch he could be deadly from mid-range out to the three-point line, and with his ability to stretch the floor that now takes away one less defender at the rim to defend John Wall when he takes his mad dash towards the rim. He is someone who you dont need to start right away but he can come in and give you and immediate scoring threat and hes a fairly good rim protector on the defensive end he also runs the floor VERY well. Oh and one more thing HE IS 19 YEARS OLD! So what about it WizardsNation tell me what you think.
