Future Wizards?

Wednesday, June 25, 2008

Roy Hibbert

Georgetown, Center

The most experienced big man in the draft. Didn't work out for Wizards but that's not a problem because the team knows him well.

Mario Chalmers

Kansas, Guard

Proven performer and winner at the college level. Excellent defensive skills and solid outside shooting should make him a good pro.

J.J. Hickson

N.C. State, Forward

Rugged big man played one college season but was productive. Could develop into a needed P.J. Brown/Kurt Thomas-type banger.

Donte Green

Syracuse, Forward

Talented but inexperienced Baltimore native attended a last-minute workout for the Wizards on Tuesday. Has star potential but was uneven during season.

Darrell Arthur

Kansas, Forward

Raw but talented prospect left Jayhawks following sophomore year. Could be too tempting to pass up if he falls to 18.

Trade: Because the Wizards already have a deep roster that includes four developing players, the team may decide to get out of the first round altogether by trading the pick for a future draft pick.
