After Selection Sunday this past weekend, we now know who is going to be in the NCAA tournament this season. While most fans are filling out their brackets in an effort to successfully predict the most unpredictable sporting event in the world, NBA scouts are preparing for the most important part of their jobs. Evaluating talent at the big stage. An area the Washington Wizards are definitely going to need to hit big on this offseason.

Every year, a monstrous performance from some player projected to go mid first round turns them into a consensus top pick. It’s the scout’s job to break it down and figure out if their team should draft them.

While some of the top picks are playing either overseas or for the G-League Ignite such as Victor Wembanyama, Scoot Hendersson and the Thompson twins, Amen and Ausar, a majority of the best prospects are still playing in the NCAA.

The Washington Wizards will likely be picking anywhere between three and ten in the upcoming draft, so players projected to go in that range will likely be on the Wizards radar.

Anthony Black has been an elite point guard for Arkansas and will be an interesting watch in March.

Before the Wizards went on a losing streak and fell out of the Play-In Tournament, many fans had hoped that they would select Black if they were eliminated and kept their draft pick. He is projected to go mid to late lottery and would have been right up the Wizards alley in terms of what they need.

His fit with the team is clear as he can do just about anything on a basketball court and is an elite playmaker. On top of this, he is huge for a point guard, standing at six foot seven. He would slide into the point guard slot next to Bradley Beal seamlessly and still may be the best selection for the Wiz.
