Draft Notes: Wizards, White, Garland

The Wizards will work out Coby White (North Carolina) and Nassir Little (North Carolina) on Monday, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports relays (Twitter link) Both prospects are options for the team at No. 9.

Jonathan Givony has White, who will be the highest-ranked prospect to work out for the Wizards, going to the Suns at No. 6 in his latest mock draft on ESPN. Givony places Little in Minnesota at No. 11.

Kevin Porter Jr. (USC) was previously scheduled to take part in the workout, though he will no longer be in attendance. Here’s more on the upcoming draft:

  • The Bulls will work out Darius Garland this week, Givony passes along (Twitter link). The Knicks, Lakers, Cavs, and Suns have either worked out Garland or plan to do so.
  • Garland believes he’s the best point guard in the draft, as he tells Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com. “I humbly say this, I think I’m the best [guard] in the draft,” he told McMenamin. “I mean, I think I can do everything that an NBA team wants me to do.”
  • Garland’s workouts with the Lakers was particularly impressive, a source tells McMenamin while referencing the point guard’s shot-making ability and deep range. The event took place prior to the Anthony Davis trade.

    Garland would have been perfect for the lakers had they kept the pick. I do wonder if Pelicans draft him at 4 and then ship off Zo for the 6th pick and draft Jaxson Hayes giving them a Garland-Holiday-Ingram-Zion-Hayes lineup?

      I am thinking about the same thing! Could even keep Garland and Zo and just go after one of the many centers available via free agency.

  2. That’s the thing. There are a lot of centers availables, why take a rookie? Take a shot on BroLo, vooc, dmc and overall DaJ…

    Pels will scrape hawks….get multiple picks for #4 pick. Not sure why hawks are so anxious to move up….rumors.

    Everyone forgets Ingram is due a contract extension. I love Ingram but I don’t know that he’s a max player. While everyone is saying pelicans won they are not taking into account Ingram’s next contract. If Ingram ties up a max spot pelicans could only sign one max player down road. Lonzo is a circus could be great but what a headache. Hart is nothing special. AD is close to a faster Tim Duncan in his prime.
