The Wizards are scheduled to work out six draft-eligible players on Monday, according to Josh Robbins of The Athletic (Twitter link). Oklahoma’s Jordan Goldwire, Arkansas’ Chris Lykes, Kansas’ Remy Martin, Kansas State’s Mike McGuirl, Alabama’s Jaden Shackelford and Notre Dame’s Blake Wesley will attend the session.
As noted by Robbins, all six players are guards. The Wizards, who own the 10th and 54th overall picks in the draft, are coming off a season in which they finished with a 35-47 record, missing the playoffs.
Here are some other notes from the Southeast Division:
- Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel examines how UNLV’s Donovan Williams could fit with the Magic. Aside from having the No. 1 pick, Orlando also owns the No. 32 and No. 35 selections in the event. Williams, a 6’6″ guard, averaged 12.7 points per game this past season.
- Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel explores whether the Heat‘s individual defensive weaknesses are overstated. Winderman ponders whether Miami could compensate for some defensive issues by putting more points on the board. While players such as Tyler Herro improved defensively this season, others (such as Duncan Robinson) did not. Robinson fell out of Miami’s rotation during the postseason as a result.
- The Hawks will work out five players on Monday ahead of the June 23 draft, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic tweets. Atlanta will bring in Ochai Agbaji (Kansas), Olek Balcerowski (Spain), Shareef O’Neal (LSU), Scotty Pippen Jr. (Vanderbilt) and Jalen Williams (Santa Clara). The team will pick 16th and 44th this year.
