wizards cant develop players vs wizards cant draft

There has been lots of talk about how Ernie Grunfeld and his inability to draft. and rightly so.

Drafting Oleksiy Pecherov with the #18 Pick of the 2006 Draft. In this draft Grunfeld passed up on Rajon Rondo and Kyle Lowry

Trading for a 1st round draft pick in 2007 from the Memphis Grizzlies and then the following year giving back the pick involving a 3 team trade with the New Orleans Hornets. This resulted in obtaining Mike James and Javaris Crittendon

Trading the #5 Pick in the 2009 Draft for Mike Miller and Randy Foye. Trading this pick Grunfeld passed up on the likes of Stephen Curry, Ricky Rubio, and Brandon Jennings

Passing on DeJuan Blair in the 2nd round of the 2009 Draft for Jermaine Taylor whom was traded to the Houston Rockets for cash considerations

Drafting Jan Vesely with the #6 Pick of the 2011 Draft. In this draft Grunfeld passed up on Nikola Vucevic, Kawhi Leonard, and Klay Thompson

Drafting Oleksiy Pecherov with the #18 Pick of the 2006 Draft. In 2 seasons he averaged 3.9 points and 2.2 rebounds. No longer in the league

Drafting Vladimir Veremeenko with the #48 Pick of the 2006 Draft. Traded to the Chicago Bulls later on in the draft and never played a minute. No longer in the league

Drafting Tomas Satoransky with the #32 Pick of the 2012 Draft. Currently overseas and played in the 2012 NBA Summer League whom did not look very impressive

i can go on a lil but you get the point.

He Also Drafted John wall who is posed for a break out year bradley beal who in his rookie year showed alot of promise Nick young and mcgee who had there bright spots

I guess what im trying to understand is. There is also alot of talk that wizards Front officer cant develop talent. As if to say if we would have drafted klay Thompson he wouldnt have been a good player for us. knocking down 3's

Now is that to say that if Spurs or thunder was to draft Oleksiy Pecherov he woulda been maybe a 10 and 10 guy ?. that if another team was to draft Jan vesley he would have been the dunking ninja that everyone thought he would be.Nick young and Mcgee where both talented players who you can say we didnt develop but they have went on to other teams and have played similar ways.

Witch is it can we not develop talent or are we just that bad at drafting ? just wanted to hear fellow fans thoughts
