Info on workouts
I wanted to drop in and share with you the list of guys who are going to be working out for the Wizards later this week. On Thursday the Wiz are will bring in PG Jared Jordan (Marist), center Jason Smith (Colo State), PG Taurean Green (Florida) and C Larry Turner (Tenn State).
On Friday, scheduled workout guys include: SG Nick Young (USC), G Sun Yue (China), PG Javaris Crittenton (G Tech), G-F Derrick Byers (Vandy), F Josh McRoberts (Duke) and F-C Anthony Tolliver (Creighton).
Jordon, Green and Sun Yue helped themselves with nice performances down in Orlando last week at the pre-draft camp. (I came away with a strong feeling that Green will be a nice point guard in this league for a long time. He really showed an ability to run a team, pressure the ball defensively and knock down the periodic open J).
Smith and NIck Young are projected first-rounders who declined to play in Orlando and I could see the Wiz taking a long look at them given their immediate needs (especially if Ernie Grunfeld pulls the trigger on a deal to move Brendan Haywood and/or Etan Thomas this summer and allows Jarvis Hayes to walk via free agency).
I'm heading to San Antonio on Wednesday to cover the first two games of the Finals. My question to you hard core hoop heads out there: How long does this thing go? Six games? Five? Four?
