With just two days to go, NBA Draft rumors are flying, including the Hawks trying to move up, Blazers leaning against a trade and more.
NBA Draft rumors: Wizards focusing on selecting Anthony Black
According to Jonathan Givony, the Wizards are focusing in on a single prospect with the eighth overall pick. This is a team that is heading toward a rebuild after trading Bradley Beal. Kyle Kuzma is most likely gone. Kristaps Porzingis is a player that could end up being traded (or sign-and-traded) after he opts into his player option.
With that in mind, the Wizards are looking to make their first pick of this new era. They are reportedly looking to select Anthony Black with the No. 8 overall pick. They are focusing on him after giving a player a second workout with the team.
Anthony Black is a player out of Arkansas who has a lot of play-making ability. He is a combo guard with great size and defensive versatility. According to Givony, the Wizards are also giving some consideration to Kobe Bufkin from Michigan but Black appears to be the clear front-runner.
