Wizards win big in 2011 NBA Draft!

+

It's been a while since the Wizards have been an NBA powerhouse. Well, after Thursday's NBA Draft that day may be just down the road. With the addition of Jan Vesely and Chris Singleton, Washington could be looking towards the playoffs a lot sooner than anyone expected

Ted Leonsis on yesterday's NBA Draft

Ted gives his review of last night on his blog. In short, he's happy we were able to add more young talent to the system, and he gave reasons why we chose not to move up in the draft, nor sell a pick for cash. I feel it's almost as transparent as you can get about the whole deal.

First of all, apologies for the lack of output this weekend. Posting on Father's Day is tough for me, for reasons I'll probably get into at some point during the long summer, but still, there's...

My piece breaking down what I saw from top prospects in the NCAA Tournament this weekend. A lot of it is particularly relevant for us Wizards fans.

In the unlikely case that Rubio slips past Sacramento, it appears that Washington will not hesitate to pick him if they feel like he’s indeed the best player on their draft board. The prevailing sentiment at the moment is that Rubio is not in a position to return to Joventut, and that he may have lost some of the leverage he once had by keeping his name in the draft and suing his former team. Many feel like Rubio would be a good fit in Washington playing alongside Gilbert Arenas, but Rubio’s camp apparently does not agree with that notion at all.

via Draft Express Really? With Paul Westphal in SacTown do people really think Rubio would slip past #4? I'd be shocked.

One team that could reportedly help Dallas move up high enough to pick [Jordan] Hill is the Washington Wizards at #5, a team they already have a history with making draft-day deals. The two teams swapped Antawn Jamison for Jerry Stackhouse and the #4 pick (Devin Harris) back in 2004, a move that worked out well for both parties. Dallas can offer either the non-guaranteed contract of Jerry Stackhouse to help the Wizards reduce payroll next year (while taking someone like Mike James or Etan Thomas off their hands) or they can help the Wizards by providing a veteran like Josh Howard or Jason Terry if it’s experience and scoring punch they are after. Either move would allow the Mavericks to stay flexible from a financial standpoint as they look towards the free agent class of 2010. They can also dangle their first round pick (#22).

Wanna Follow A Future Wizard On Twitter? (potentially)

2

With JaVale McGee sporadically on Twitter, and Mike James tweeting, "Leave mike vick alone. U already made him start over financially. What else u want his head for dogs. Better b careful what u kill," it's time to get some more Wizards on board (could only be a matter of time before the blogging Brendan Haywood is hip to the game). Well, future Wizard, Blake Griffin, is tweeting his way to the NBA. Follow B.G. and let him know how good he'll look in a Wizards uniform. And remember, May 19th is less than a week away.

I just spent the day with him in San Francisco on Monday. All I can say is wow. The physical tools are amazing and the workout he goes through everyday is the most grueling I've ever seen. Griffin looks like he's training to be a Navy SEAL. However, what was really impressive was the basketball part with former Spurs head coach Bob Hill. He's much more skilled offensively than you think. Excellent ball handler and nice stroke with some three point range. And he's a nice, grounded kid with a very cool family. I was super impressed.

Chad Ford, ESPN (and also because SacTown Royalty posted the same thing ... how DARE they try to steal Blake from us!)
