So You’re Saying There’s a Chance

11) Kevin Porter Jr

Porter Jr was a late invite to the NBA Draft green room and is a bit of a puzzling invitation. Porter definitely has the talent to be an NBA starter, but injury and suspension marred his freshman year at USC. He was reported to have had a pre-draft workout with the Wizards, but never did.

10) Keldon Johnson

Johnson worked out for the Wizards and was the first lottery-level talent to visit Washington, so there’s obviously some interest. However, taking him at nine is a huge reach.

9) De’Andre Hunter

The centerpiece of the reigning NCAA champion Virginia Cavaliers is NBA ready right now. However, it’s all but certain that he’ll be off the board when the Wizards are on the clock.

8) Jaxson Hayes

Some mock drafts have Hayes going to Washington. But with a blank slate of a roster and two centers already under contract for next season, a rim-running big might actually be a redundancy. Especially if the Wizards plan on keeping Thomas Bryant.

7) Bol Bol

If the Wizards are going to take a swing, they might as well take a big swing. Bol has all the upside. He also has a long list of question marks, though, including injury risk and character concerns. However, Bol’s ability to literally do it all, from shot blocking to three-point shooting, makes him this year’s unicorn.

6) Coby White

White worked out with the Wizards just this week and could be the perfect piece for a Wizards rebuild. However, with a couple of teams ahead of the Wizards in need of a point guard, he’s a longshot at number nine. Whoever doesn’t get Garland (between the Bulls and Suns) probably grabs White.
