Say Hello to the Newest Washington Wizard

5) Rui Hachimura

Hachimura is an interesting prospect. At 6’8 with a 7’2 wingspan, he has the potential to guard all positions on the floor. He isn’t the most polished player, but his solid skill set will translate well, and quickly, to the NBA. He should still be available at nine, too.

4) Cam Reddish

If Reddish is available at nine, it means enough teams think the red flags are legitimate and passed on his obvious skill. One of the more purely talented players in this year’s draft, Reddish has all the tools to blossom into a great NBA wing. But can he put it all together?

3) Brandon Clarke

One of the most accomplished college players in this year’s draft, Clarke could contribute for the Wizards on day one. And he better. At 23 years old, they don’t have the time to develop him that they would with a 19-year-old project. He’ll be older than Bradley Beal is currently once his rookie deal’s up.

2) Nassir Little

Little is the only prospect the Wizards worked out that is projected to go somewhere around number nine. Despite a rocky freshman year, Little is said to have wowed scouts and front offices in his pre-draft workouts and interviews. Both Ted Leonsis and Tommy Sheppard were in attendance to watch Little’s workout earlier this week.

1) Sekou Doumbouya

Doumbouya makes the most sense for what’s projected to be available for the Wizards at nine. He’s young with a lot of upside on both the offensive and defensive end. The Wizards window is not right now. They can afford to draft a player with high upside that might need some development. Doumbouya fits the bill perfectly.

Although, the Wizards might still be hurting from their previous overseas lottery pick failure to take a swing on Doumbouya.
