VIDEO: John Wall Says Wizards Need '2 Or 3 Guard' In NBA Draft

New, comments


John Wall has never been one to shy away from telling reporters what his team needs to get better, but these comments to CSN Washington's Chris Miller were about as specific as I've ever heard Wall be. The Washington Wizards' guard was asked, point blank, what positions the team needed to fill most with their No. 3 pick in the NBA Draft. His answer to that question begins around the 57-minute mark.

"I think you need a two-guard, a two or three guard, especially another 2 or 3 to come in and bring a lot of energy," Wall answered. "I think you've got the big man position where we need it at, so I think just between a 2 and 3, we'd be good."

That would seem to back up preliminary reports that the Wizards are deciding between Florida's Bradley Beal and Kentucky's Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. I still think Thomas Robinson should be considered, but I think most people would agree with Wall that the Wizards' weakest positions are shooting guard and small forward.
