Washington is adding another undrafted player to the mix, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN:

Keene was one of the players the Wizards brought in for a predraft workout. He was actually part of the same workout as Kris Jenkins, who the team also signed to a deal after Thursday’s draft.

Keene has a lot of similarities with Isaiah Thomas: They’re both prolific scorers who were not very highly regarded going into the draft because of their lack of size and because they don’t have pure point passing instincts. It would be asking a lot for Keene to live up to the high bar Thomas set, but if he can exceed expectations, he could be a bit of a steal for the Wizards.
