The Wizards have a tough choice at pick #5, and could do about a million different things. One option would be to swap the pick for a later pick and a player.
According to Wizards Insider, the Wiz are working out a projected late first rounder from Louisville, Terrence Williams, throwing fuel on the rumor that the Wiz want to move down.
So who is Terrence Williams? According to Draft Express, the "worst case" he becomes another...drum roll please...Dominic McGuire! Yes Wiz fans, you probably think "Awesome I love the Taser", but come on, the Wizards finished basically in last place. Where is their "chosen one!"
For now, Williams is not as exciting as a top 5 pick and gives me no reason to even think about him based on a simple workout. Is this news telling us that the Wiz are moving down? Not really! Yesterday they are moving up for Rubio, today they are moving down for Williams. I hate this! Can they just have the draft tomorrow?
The other player working out with the Wiz is local (Dematha) Mamadi Diane, a mythical 4 year college player from UVA. This article from the Washington Post pretty much sums up why we won't worry about him either...
CHARLOTTESVILLE -- Virginia senior Mamadi Diane will play his final home game Saturday when the Cavaliers host Maryland. Such finales usually feature the celebration of a senior's career, but for Diane, the day also will mean a forgettable senior season is drawing closer to an end. --Washington Post, March 2009
