Hope everyone has a Happy Father’s Day this weekend. Let’s get right to the links:

Wizards hold more pre-draft workouts

As we mentioned before, the Wizards aren’t looking for the next franchise star or even another rotation level starter. That doesn’t mean that they are going to sit idly by during the NBA Draft. In fact, they still invited players over this past week. Peter Jok and Andrew White were part of the group that participated last Thursday.

More Player Analysis

Our player evaluation series continued as we talked about Daniel Ochefu’s and Ian Mahinmi’s performances last season. In short, the jury’s still out on Ochefu, but Mahinmi needs to be more duralbe next year.

Also, get ready for NBA Summer League in Las Vegas! The schedule was released earlier this week. Sheldon Mac, Daniel Ochefu, and Chris McCullough will be the regular players who will lead the way in a few weeks.

Finally, Bradley Beal has been blogging on his site lately. He wrote an update in regard to his personal growth and the improvement the Wizards made last season.

The Mystics are doing just fine

After losing big time to the Lynx last Friday, the Mystics bounced right back to a huge 88-70 win over the Indiana Fever last Sunday. The Mystics will get back in action on Father’s Day against the Wings.

I also have some more team analysis coming up before the Dream game by the way.

Finally, check out this feature Lindsay Gibbs of Summitt Hoops has on Shatori Walker-Kimbrough.

Emma Meesseman is getting Belgium on fire!

The Belgian women’s national team just started play yesterday in EuroBasket Women 2017 in the Czech Republic. They won 66-64. Early in the game, Meesseman showed us that she can make Bria Hartley-esque highlights without having to make a Bria Hartley move! They followed that up with a 76-75 overtime win over Russia, the toughest team in their group.

With the win over Russia, Belgium will make the quarterfinals in EuroBasket Women. They’re now playing with house money y’all.

Before she headed out to Tomas Satoransky’s homeland, Meesseman had a dominating performance against the Netherlands in Belgium’s last friendly before the real thing. After that game, she shared a tender moment with her grandfather.

Odds and Ends

Let’s get to this last group of links before we call it it quits here:

Happy Father’s Day everyone!
