“The NBA is a faster game. I like a fast game, so my game will translate easily,” Vesely said. “My best skill is running. I can help win games.”

Wizards general manager Ernie Grunfeld wasn’t giving away too many clues when he held his post-workout press conference Tuesday, but did acknowledge that last year’s draft was more fun than this one will be.

“I liked the draft better last year when we could pick whoever we wanted [at No. 1 overall],” Grunfeld said. “In all likelihood, we will be looking for a frontcourt player if possible. You’re looking for a total package. Can they play, are they athletic, are they versatile, are they team players, do they have good character? All those things come into play.

“This year, it’s a little bit different because the player we pick will be determined by who goes in front of us. But we’ve done our work. I think we’re going to get a solid player.”
