The Wizards return to the draft workout program on Monday as another group of six prospects are expected to visit the Verizon Center.
Tennessee guard Jordan McRae is the highest rated player visiting Washington on Monday per DraftExpress.com's rankings, New Mexico center Alex Kirk the highest rated big man. Others working out for the Wizards include guards Chris Crawford (Memphis), Tim Frazier (Penn State) plus forward Will Sheehey (Indiana). Center Daniel Miller (Georgia Tech) will battle Kirk during the workout.
Washington owns the 46th overall pick in the June 26th draft. The Wizards will also need to fill out their summer league roster.
- Listed at 7-feet, 250 lbs by the Wizards, Kirk averaged 13.3 points, 8.7. rebounds and 2.7 blocks as a junior with the Lobos this past season. DraftExpress ranks him as the 90th overall prospect, but as the saying goes, you can't teach height. Should the Wizards retain Marcin Gortat, Drew Gooden and Kevin Seraphin, the team would have roster space for a developing big man.
- McRae led the Volunteers to the NCAA Tournament's Round of 16 and with 18.6 points on 37 percent shooting from beyond the 3-point arc. He also played in the infamous 37-36 loss to Georgetown at the Verizon Center during the 2012-13 season.
- Frazier stuffed the stat sheet during his senior season with the Nittany Lions, averaging 14.9 points, 5.4. assists, 4.4 rebounds and 1.6 steals. He also shot 29.1 percent on his 3-point attempts.
- Sheehey averaged 11.4 points and 30 minutes a game for Indiana last season.
- Crawford (8.7 points) and the Tigers faced George Washington and Virginia in last season's NCAA Tournament.
- The 6-foot-11 Miller went for 10.9 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.4 blocks for Georgia Tech as a senior.
Just because the Wizards are bringing in prospects for a workout doesn't mean that Washington will draft any of them with their second-round pick in the 2014 Draft. That doesn't mean they won't either. Therefore we'll continue to keep a running tally of those bigs, wings and guards making their way to Chinatown.
