Brandon Miller is within reach of the Washington Wizards.

While they may need some luck in the lottery, the Wizards are within reach of potentially drafting the Alabama forward. The bigger question it whether or not he’ll slide to three or if he’ll be taken second overall. A hot debate at the moment as there are two perfectly acceptable options.

His versatility on offense is clear, he can shoot at an elite level already and has shown plenty of flashes in getting his shot at the rim. He is clearly a high scoring player with impressive potential but still has some problems as a potential fit for the Wiz.

Even with some recent issues off the court, teams have not been deterred from wanting to draft Miller. Still, it is something to keep in mind as the draft approaches as anything can happen with his situation.

That aside, his fit with the Washington Wizards is questionable at best. His weaknesses would be exposed on this current rendition of the team. His thin frame would prevent him from helping Kristaps Porzingis’ lack of strength any time soon. This would cause even more issues in the ‘Wizards getting bullied by stronger players’ department, an area they already need to address.

On top of his lack of strength, the Wizards already have two All-Star caliber forwards. The Washington Wizards currently plan on bringing Kyle Kuzma back for next season, so it wouldn’t make sense for them to pick up another forward in the draft. Considering they also have Deni Avdija and Corey Kispert off the bench, this draft selection seems unlikely, but a strong tournament performance could change that very quickly.
