Chad Ford of ESPN.com released his latest NBA Mock Draft.
Here is his Wizards selections (along with my analysis in blue):
School: San Diego State
Analysis: The Wizards need rebounding and would love it if Enes Kanter was still on the board. They also have been huge fans of Vesely and would jump at the chance to take him here. But if they're both off the board, this pick comes down to Leonard, Tristan Thompson and Klay Thompson.
It might be a tough call for the Wizards, but the smart money is on Leonard. The Wizards have been all over him all year. He's tough, he's versatile and if he ever learns to really shoot the basketball ... watch out.
^ Interesting, everyone thinks this is the best and safest pick. We'll see what Ernie Grunfeld has in store though. He likes to gamble, so we'll see if he does.
On to #18...
Analysis: In this mock, we have the Wizards going with a forward at No. 6. That sets them up to grab yet more rebounding help in the paint from Morris at No. 18. Morris' size, shot-blocking and ability to stretch the defense with his shooting should make him an attractive option here.
^ That's actually a smart and great pick if it comes to it. If the Wizards select Markieff Morris, they have selected a power forward and a small forward in the first round and knocked out two needs immediately. The Wiz Kids have helped their front court tremendously.
And now the 2nd round pick...
Travis Leslie | SG | Georgia
In this mock draft, the Wizards get two bigs in the first round. With this pick they grab, perhaps, the most athletic 2-guard in the draft. If he was a better shooter, he would be a lottery pick.
^ So that's pretty exciting if they can grab Leslie in the 2nd round. He's actually in Washington today working out (Tuesday June 21). Overall, this would be a great draft if they can select all 3 players. That would help this team right away.
