Marcus (Mpls) Do you think the TWolves will keep the 2nd pick or trade it? Chad Ford (1:13 PM) I think they trade. But they won't give the pick away. I think they're another possible destination for Monta Ellis. I think they're also intrigued if they could swap No. 2 for JaVale McGee.

Chad Ford. So, would you swap JaVale McGee for what would likely be Derrick Williams? UPDATE: Ford also says the Wizards aren't "super active," but there are some in the organization who want to "totally remake" the roster and rebuild around John Wall. UPDATE: More Ford, in his latest mock draft: "Publicly, the team is claiming that they're likely to hang on to the pick. Privately, they're hoping that a team comes along and offers them an impact veteran -- someone such as Pau Gasol, Monta Ellis or even JaVale McGee -- for the pick."

Report on Kawhi Leonard

Kawhi Leonard worked out for the Washington Wizards today. Here's a report.

Jordan Hamilton admits he felt "dizzy" at times during the workout

More on Leonard in a bit, but first, I was kind of surprised to hear Jordan Hamilton admit he felt "dizzy" during the workout because he woke up too late to get something to eat. Odd thing to admit. In the part we saw, he looked fine, though I'll admit I wasn't watching him as closely as Leonard or Jordan Williams. Worth noting: Flip Saunders' workouts are notoriously harder than most. Kawhi Leonard admitted it was the toughest draft workout he's been through.

Enes Kanter not being scheduled for a workout by his chosen team? Smells like gamesmanship.

As far as other teams considering buying into the D-League, I've heard the Indiana Pacers (more here), Golden State Warriors and Washington Wizards are said to at least trying to figure out the logistics of buying into the D-League.

If Kanter isn't drafted second or third, his next most likely destination is in here. All indications are that the Wizards would love to add him to their frontcourt rotation. He would give them a big boost on the glass in particular, an area where they ranked among the NBA's worst last season. Washington is also exploring opportunities to move up, ideally to No. 2, where they'd be able to select Derrick Williams, who would be an ideal teammate for John Wall.

Jonathan Givony has the Wizards taking Enes Kanter at No. 6 in his latest mock draft. He also has the Wizards taking Tobias Harris at 18 and passing on Chris Singleton.
