If he had his druthers, Beasley said he would prefer to play for the Washington Wizards, the NBA team closest to his hometown of Frederick, Md. But there appears to be no way he will last long enough for the Wizards to take him with their 18th pick in the first round. Can somebody get my man some druthers???

Hibbert, who is the most experienced center in a draft deep at that position, declined an invitation to work out for the Wizards because his agent felt that he is a lock to go higher than 18th. Grunfeld said that would not prevent the Wizards from taking him.

Ivan Carter delivers the reasoning behind Roy's decision not to work out with the Wizards. I can understand that reasoning, but it leads to the inevitable question of "If he thinks he's going before #18, then why did he schedule two (2) workouts with Utah who doesn't pick until #23?"

Even if you are just looking for a solid contributor in the second round, you have your work cut out for you. Five years after the draft, second rounders are more likely to be sitting at home watching basketball on television than to be contributing to an NBA team: 30% of second rounders never played in an NBA game, while 68% are out of the league within five years.

Something to keep in mind as you hunt for Sr. Prolopo.

The Wizards will continue their pre-draft workouts today at Verizon Center. The Wizards will be bringing in the following six players. # Alexis Ajinca - France # Stanley Burrell - Xavier # J.J. Hickson - NC State # Walter Sharpe - UAB # Darian Townes - Arkansas # Jonathan Wallace - Georgetown

Wizards.com blog Ajinca is a big man that's been flying up the boards, and Hickson is an intriguing power forward with really solid rebounding numbers. If we traded down, he'd be my first target.
