Ernie Grunfield's Wizards History has shown he is at his best drafting Late in the 2nd round


As one of the biggest bashers of the Ernie Grunfield regime with the Washington Wizards, I have to give him props for his late choices in the 2nd round. As we all should know anyone picked in the 40's has a very long shot of contributing to the team, much less even making the team. Here we go:

2005- Pick #49: Andray Blatch- Even though he is a knucklehead he is still in the league contributing nicely with the Nets.

2006- Pick #48: Vladimir Veremeenko- He has never played in the NBA. His draft rights were traded for Kirk Hinrich, the rights to the 17th pick in the draft (Kevin Seraphin) and $3million. The Wizards then sent Kirk to the Atlanta Hawks for Jordan Crawford and a #1 pick. Not bad at all. He is still playing professionally overseas and has won numberous Russian championships. I guess he just likes playing in his home country of Russia.

2007- Pick #47: Dominic McGuire- Dominic played 6 years in the NBA with 3 of those with the Wizards. In his second year he started 57 games. That is a very productive 2nd round pick.

2008- Pick #47: Bill Walker- Drafted by the Wizards and then SOLD to the Celtics. Played 4 years in the NBA including 8 playoff games. Averaged 22 minutes a game for New Yorks 4 playoff games in 2011.

So good news Wizards Fans. It appears that we have Ernie right where we want him: Drafting at #46.
