John Wall to work out for Wizards tomorrow

The John Wall era unofficially begins for the Wizards Thursday morning at approximately 11 a.m., when he goes through a predraft workout at Verizon Center.

Wall is scheduled to work out by himself for roughly an hour on the auxiliary court before six other players also audition audition for Wizards GM Ernie Grunfeld and Coach Flip Saunders, among others.

The Wizards have the No. 1 overall pick in the June 24 NBA draft, and from the moment they won the draft lottery, all indications pointed to them using the selection on the dynamic point guard who dazzled at Kentucky. The first-team all-American averaged 16.6 points, 6.5 assists and 4.3 rebounds as a freshman before declaring for the draft.

Other players working out Thursday are Mississippi guard Terrico White, Syracuse guard Andy Rautins, Texas center Dexter Pittman, Texas A&M G-F Kevin Palmer, Wake Forest C Chas McFarland and New Mexico G-F Darington Hobson.

John Wall will be a better pro player than college... and that's saying a lot.

"John Wall will be a better pro player than college... and that's saying a lot."

Great players usually are.

I can't wait to see him play in the Fall.

Andy Rautins is an interesting late 2nd rounder/undrafted free agent choice. He was a lights out shooter for the Cuse.

Drafting John will put Gilbert up against the Wall

How about going with either Kevin Palmer (another local kid named Kevin) or Quincy Pondexter at the "3" or maybe even Darrington Hobson for the 35th pick all of these guys are young and Hobson really boards well

Or another way to go is move up to get the 7 footer from Marshall or Cole Aldrich and maybe sign Rudy Gay via free agency...Oh yea, don't forget about G. Vasquez...I didn't like him but the kid has definetely got game. That way you can address the "5" and bolster the "3" positions

Nah, it'll just move Gilbert back to his natural position... 2-Guard

I don't understand why everyone believes Gilbert can't play w/ Wall. I think they will go great together like "milk & cereal"...reminiscent of he and Larry Hughes where they had marginal success. I'm interested in knowing what the public thinks

Not exactly a ringing endorsement.
