The Wizards announced Boston College guard Jerome Robinson will participate in a pre-draft workout on Wednesday.
Unless the team plans on hosting another workout on the day of the draft, this will be their last workout, and only the second workout with just one player. The other took place on Monday when the team invited Texas A&M big man Robert Williams in for a workout.
Robinson has skyrocketed up the draft boards in recent weeks. ESPN projected he would go with the 38th pick in their first mock draft after the NBA Draft Lottery. On Tuesday, they projected he will be taken with the 13th pick. Other mocks are a little more conservative in their projections, but still show him as a candidate in the Wizards’ range. NBADraft.net has him going 16th. Sports Illustrated has him going 17th. The Ringer has him going 23rd.
Robinson would fill an immediate need for scoring guard off the bench behind Bradley Beal, especially while Jodie Meeks serves out the rest of his suspension. The big question would be if the Wizards are getting the most out of that pick if he’s projecting to play behind John Wall and Bradley Beal for the foreseeable future. On the other hand, he might make a more sense if he slips a bit and the Wizards can trade down to get him.
