    Probably, to get Kanter or if for some unforseen reason Williams is there.

    Kanter is a perfect fit for the Wizards! He and Mcgee would give us a great front court for the next decade.

    Imagine Wall, Crawford, Young, Kanter, and McGee. That's a great young foundation to build upon.

    I really think we should try and sign and trade Nick Young and the 18th pick for Beasley.
    Wall, Crawford, Beasley, Kanter, Mcgee = Dream

    I really want Leonard

    We need a Defensive guy like him, plus by all accounts he is a huge gym rat, guys like that get good, especially with his crazy athleticism
    Jackie Bradley Junior.... that is all

    Biyombo is sorta undersized, and we have almost no real idea of his potential, so hes sort of a risky, risky pick.

    I personally love what i've seen of his game. Real athlete. Banger down low, shot blocker. It's kinda cliche to compare him to Serge Ibaka since they're both from Congo, but that's really the closest player he translates too. I see him as Ibaka with less athleticism, less offensive game (yeah i know, seems hard to do), but better defensive game (which is really impressive). He's only 6'9, but he has a big body and long wingspan. He will likely be a career role player/shot blocking specialist.

    I wouldn't at all mind picking him with our 18 pick, but i'd prefer someone like Tobias Harris, Chris Singleton, or even Nolan Smith or Marshon Brooks (especially if Young walks)

    Someone that's really interesting me though.. Is Jeremy Tyler. He has maturity issues from what i hear, but he has solid starter potential at the 4 and he's 19, and has a late first/early second round grade from what i understand.

    Yep Vesely seems really good.

    Here's an article i just wrote for a blog i'm working on.. Let me know what you guys think:

    As we all know, the NBA draft is quickly approaching. Disappointingly, the Wizards moved down two spots in the lottery to the 6 spot, hold the 18th pick, and the 34th pick.

    The Wizards have a few major needs. Itís hard to say whether they should draft a small forward or power forward with the 6th pick, but itís probably safe to say the wizards will take the best available of prospects at those two positions. Iím not quite sure that Blatche belongs in the long-term plans of the franchise, unless he has a rapid improvement next year, and Trevor Booker and Kevin Seraphin are both wild cards (although Booker was extremely impressive). Rashard Lewis and Josh Howard also arenít long-term fixes for this team. The Wizards should also address the need of a backup PG/SG. Iím fairly certain that Wall will work out, and Crawford looks like he can become a VERY solid starter in this league. Depending on if Nick Young departs in free agency, we will likely need a backup PG or SG. Although Iíd love to think Nick Young could stay and be a sixth man, his time here is likely almost over.

    The most likely situation is: Irving, Williams, Kanter, and Knight all go in the top 4. The 5 pick could be anyone, but itís a little tough to expect Kanter or Williams to be available for us at 6.

    Possible picks at 6:

    Jan Vesely, 6-11 230, 21 years old SF/PF Ė Czech Republic

    Veselyís strengths are definitely his size and athleticism. He is not your typical ďEuropean StyleĒ player. His game isnít based on jumpers like Nowitzki and Bargnani type players, but he does have a very good shot. He often relies simply on his jumper and athleticism at times, and what i mean is, he doesnít have very developed offensive skills, especially in the post. He isnít as strong as he should be, but he could very well improve. He needs to become more consistent in the NBA, but i think alongside players like Wall and McGee, he would fit RIGHT into the style of play. I think heís probably our best option should he be available.

    Kawhi Leonard, 6-7 227, 19 years old SF Ė San Diego State University

    Leonard is compared to Gerald Wallace, which I like a lot. I didnít get the opportunity to watch TOO many SDSU games, but from i did see, Iím very impressed. Being called a high energy player is another thing i like. Heís fast, strong, and has a lot of very good qualities. Heís not the greatest defender, but heís solid. Sort of inconsistent offensively, but has the tools to develop into a solid threat. I need to see more of him to know how I feel, but heís as close to a sure pick we can get at six. European players are always risky, and Iím not sure there are any PFís worth drafting that arenít named Enes Kanter.

    Tristan Thompson, 6-9 227, 20 years old PF Ė Texas

    Thompson is flying up mock drafts as of late. Heís a legitimate top 10 prospect with the thinness of the draft (especially with PFís). He doesnít have the size people want, but he has tremendous wingspan, which translates to him being a phenomenal rebounder. Tristan is surprisingly extremely quick for his size. The manís got some hops too.. Heís extremely athletic, which does not make up for his lack of size, but with the development of some legitimate post moves, down the line he eventually could make up for his lack of size. His jumpshot is very weak, that needs some major work. In other words, he is very raw. He could very well get over-picked at 6 by the Wizards, but it may not necessarily be a bad pick. Heíd be coming into a situation where he will get burn, and take advantage of playing next to a tower in Javale McGee. Thompson has fantastic potential. This is a risky pick, but it could easily pay off. High risk, high reward.

    These are the only real possibilities i can see the Wizards drafting at the six spot, barring a fall of Williams or Kanter. As of now.. I think i would prefer to draft Leonard, but Iím warming up to both Vesely and Thompson, i would be excited over any three of the prospects.

    Tomorrow, i will give you a look at the options at the 18th pick.
    I'll give you guys a link to the blog when i finish up the design aspects.

    My personal big board looks like this:
    Kanter
    Vessley
    Valciunas (sp?)
    Leonard

    I really think we should sign and trade Nick Young to MN or Utah with #6 for either 2 or 3 and secure Kanter.

    I like this board. But id put Valanciunas over Vesley, and Derrick Williams #1.

    I don't like Derrick Williams at all. He's an undersized four, and cannot play the 3 despite whatever some poeple want to believe.

    We should go after Wilson Chandler in FA. He's young and fills our hole at the 3 perfectly.

    Or I know this sounds crazy but trade McGee for #2 overall and take Kanter. Sign Greg Oden in FA and Wilson Chandler. Don't think that'd happen or if we even have enough cap but that'd be a sick foundation for the future.

    Wall, Crawford/Young, Chandler, Kanter, Oden
