Wizards looking for versatility in draft prospects

← return to Wizards Watch

With the NBA Draft a little more than a week away, the Wizards continued working out prospects on Tuesday, inviting six more players to come in and participate.

Tuesday’s workout invitees:

Tobias Harris, a 6-foot-8, 226 lb. forward from Tennessee who averaged 15.3 points and 7.3 rebounds per game as a freshman in 2010-11.

Tyler Honeycutt, a 6-foot-8, 118 lb. forward from UCLA who averaged 12.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game as a sophomore in 2010-11.

E’Twan Moore, a 6-foot-4, 191 lb. guard from Purdue who finished second on the team in scoring  with 18 points per game as a senior in 2010-11.

Marcus Morris, a 6-foot-9, 235 lb. forward from Kansas who led the Jayhawks in scoring with 17.2 points per game as a junior in 2010-11.

Chris Singleton, a 6-foot-9, 225 lb. forward from Florida State who averaged 13.1 points, 6.8 rebounds per game as a junior in 2010-11.

Julyan Stone, a 6-foot-7, 200 lb. guard from UTEP who averaged 8.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game as a senior in 2010-11.

The Wizards are clearly looking to shore up their front court, and need versatile players who can play the three or the four, and any number of forwards they have worked out the past couple of weeks could fit the bill.

One thing nearly all the workout participants have agreed upon is that the Wizards workout is among the hardest that they have been through.

Barring a trade, the Wizards will pick 6th, 18th and 34th in next week’s draft, and have at least two more player workouts scheduled before then.
