Washington Wizards Links: Reports On First Batch Of NBA Draft Workouts

The Wizards held their first batch of NBA Draft workouts yesterday, and links on that will dominate this post.  Tristan Thompson, Alec Burks and Klay Thompson are the most important guys that rolled in.  Today, the Wizards are working out Austin Freeman, Talor Battle, Mike Davis, Papa Dia, Justin Hurtt and Ravin Johnson.  All are probably second-round picks at best.

Anyway, the links, below the jump:

  • Chad Ford reports that Klay Thompson and JaJuan Johnson were the most impressive at the workout. [@chadfordinsider]
  • Speaking of Thompson, this is a really informative profile of his game by Draft Express.  I love these "Finding a Niche" posts because they demonstrate how a player could fit in an NBA setting specifically. [Draft Express]
  • Randy Culpepper has ups. [Gene Wang]
  • Kawhi Leonard is coming in for a workout on June 7. [Michael Lee]
  • Other workout reports: Wizards ExtremeCSN WashingtonCraig StoufferCarla Peay
  • Video of the workout, plus video of all the interviews. []
  • It's always important to keep perspective with these workouts.  As Jonathan Givony of Draft Express notes, they're the least important part of this process.  In fact, check his whole feed. [@DraftExpress]
  • Sebastian Pruiti is one of the best in the business, so you'll want to check out his video breakdown of Chris Singleton.  Shorthand: strengths are all on defense, weaknesses are all on offense. [Draft Express]
  • Fran Fraschilla takes an (optimistic) look at Jan Vesely. [ESPN Insider]
  • Shaq retired yesterday, which caused me to remember the time he owned Gheorghe Muresan and the Bullets back in 1996.  Anyone else remember this game? [SB Nation D.C.]
  • Gilbert Arenas is back on Twitter and as entertaining as ever. [Truth About It]
  • Now that Ricky Rubio has signed with the Timberwolves, it's time to revisit that 2009 draft-day trade. [SB Nation D.C.]
