WASHINGTON (AP) — After scanning the globe for talent and hosting workouts for dozens of players from around the country, the Washington Wizards could end up using the third overall pick in the NBA draft on someone who played college ball in the nation's capital.
Georgetown sophomore Otto Porter, Jr. played his home games in college on the home of the Wizards. More importantly, the Wizards need a small forward with a flair for playing defense, and that's as good a description as any for the 6-foot-8 Porter.
Porter says he thinks he would be a "good fit" for the Wizards.
Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld says there isn't "a clear-cut No. 1 or a clear-cut ranking of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5" player in this draft.
