If the Wizards land the No. 1 pick, Griffin is a no-brainer. And Rubio appears to be a lock at No. 2. Washington has a 35.16 percent chance of landing one of the top two picks, so is it Griffin, Rubio or bust? Not necessarily. According to a high-ranking league executive familiar with the Wizards' front office thinking, Washington could use the third pick to draft a player like Hill or possibly Jennings or Curry. But if they get the fourth or fifth pick, they're more likely to try to trade it as part of a package deal.

Hopefully the Wizards won't end up picking lower than second, but interesting nonetheless.

Ernie isn't thrilled about drafting fifth because this draft is thin. Thinner than Andray Blatche on an American Apparel photo shoot. Drafting from this class is like being a young woman in Alaska: the odds are good but the goods are odd!

Vetter declined to name which NBA teams had invited Vasquez to work out, and the player could not be reached for comment. The Wizards said they are interested enough in Vasquez that they might invite him to work out for the club. Like other NBA teams, the Wizards might invite as many as 40 to 60 players. The club began the process Wednesday by running Temple guard Dionte Christmas, the Atlantic 10's leading scorer last season, and three other players through drills. "A lot of the players that we bring in are not just for our first-round pick, but also for our second-round pick, or for free-agent-type players that we might want to take a look at down the road," Wizards president Ernie Grunfeld said in a statement. "The thing that I get the most out of this process is being able to talk to the players and see what type of people they really are and how they handle themselves."
