The Washington Wizards have announced who will attend the pre-draft workouts on Wednesday, July 7. They are:
- Troy Baxter, F, Morgan State
- Obadiah Noel, G, UMass Lowell
- Jamorko Pickett, G, Georgetown
- Devontae Shuler, G, Ole Miss
Of the four prospects, all but Shuler went to college or are from the D.C. area. Noel is from Frederick, Md.
Based on the list of prospects here, all are probably second round prospects at best or possible Summer League invitees since none ranked in the Top 100 of NBADraft.net’s Big Board. in addition, all of the players here have played four seasons of college basketball, which generally doesn’t translate into high draft position. That said, all four were significant contributors to their teams last season.
It never hurts for the Wizards to look at multiple young prospects, even if they aren’t necessarily expected to be targets for the No. 15 pick in the Draft. Would you like to see any of Wednesday’s prospects in a Wizards uniform? Let us know in the comments!
