Wizards think Blake
Question of the Day
“That pick’s an asset for them,” the official said. “You have to understand, there are some teams that don’t have a first-round pick at all and others that might be winning teams but feel like they need to get younger at a few positions and they’d be willing to offer something to get a high draft pick.”
Grunfeld wouldn’t outline his plans, partly because he doesn’t yet know which pick the Wizards will wind up with - and also because he wants to keep his options open.
Grunfeld said: “I see five players out there that could make an impact on this team. … It’s not as deep a draft, but there are still some talented players if you’re picking in the top 10. You just might have to wait a little longer for some of those players [to develop].”
The last time the Wizards had a top-five lottery pick was 2004, when fresh off a 25-57 season they were awarded the fifth pick. Grunfeld, however, packaged that pick (which ended up being Wisconsin’s Devin Harris) with Jerry Stackhouse and Christian Laettner to acquire Jamison from the Dallas Mavericks.
“It’ll be interesting to see how it plays out,” Grunfeld said. “There are players in the draft that can help us, but at the same time, that pick can be an asset for us. We’ll look at all our options, as we are always looking for ways to make our team better.”
