Ok We got the 4th Pick... Now

Recommended Posts


Sources tell ESPN's Chad Ford that the Wizards are "very high" on UNLV F Anthony Bennett.

It's widely assumed that the Wiz will go for local product Otto Porter if he's there at No. 3. But don't sleep on Bennett, a prospect with significantly more offensive upside. As a freshman, he lit up the underrated Mountain West Conference for 16.1 points per game on 53.3 percent shooting -- and did it in just 27.1 minutes a night. Bennett is an excellent shooter and ball handler for someone listed at 6'8/240.


It looks like the Wizards are down to Bennett or Porter

The ideal scenario plan and simple is McLemore falls to us.  McLemore is the perfect fit.  We need a spot up shooter who can drain 3s... that's McLemore.  Kemba is a ball dominant 1 so McLemore fits in perfectly here.  McLemore can straight ball, throws down some highlight reel dunks that'll bring fans out of their seats in the Hive.  But I still don't see McLemore falling to 4, I bet Orlando takes him at 2.  So assuming he's not on the board my top two are Oladipo, Bennett or trade.  


Oladipo:  the MKG comparison is horrible.  Oladipo's jumper is much smoother and more consistent.  Plays great D, great motor and fits the Cho bill.  But the problem is we need a guy who can be a 20 ppg guy in the future.  I think in Oladipo's prime he averages 14-18 ppg, so that could be a problem.


Bennett: we need a big who can score and that's what Bennett is in a nutshell.  Bennett has questionable size and many scouts criticize his game on D.  However with Bennett him & Kemba combine to give us a dangerous p&r combo for years to come.  He has a good wingspan to make up for his smaller size, so he has potential on the defensive end.  


trade: Would love to swap 4 for 9 and Derrick Williams.  Derrick Williams is still a great young talent who could really benefit from a change of scenery.  Can serve as a stretch 4 which we need.  With the 9 pick, look at Shabazz or Steven Adams.  I'm tellin you that Adams kid can be the best from this class.  His potential is insane and he's a hard worker, he's huge.
