The Washington Wizards held an individual draft prospect workout for Mark Williams, a 7’1 center from Duke University, on Saturday at their practice facility in Congress Heights.
Williams played two seasons at Duke, where he averaged 11.2 points and 7.4 rebounds per game for the Blue Devils in his sophomore season where Duke advanced to the NCAA Division I men’s Final Four.
While they may select him, I’m skeptical about how much of an impact he would have in Washington barring a trade. Kristaps Porzingis and Daniel Gafford will play the majority of the starting minutes in the post and Anthony Gill will likely play a fair amount of reserve minutes. It’s doubtful that Thomas Bryant will return given his sudden decline of playing time and he’s also a free agent.
After his workout, Williams said that his workout with Washington was the last pre-scheduled one.
