The Wizards' front office may not select a point guard in the June 25 NBA Draft, but team president Ernie Grunfeld and coach Flip Saunders have done their due diligence working them out. On Tuesday, six guards - including Davidson's Stephen Curry, Syracuse's Jonny Flynn and Brandon Jennings, who played in Italy last year - had a group workout at Verizon Center. Jennings - who last year turned down a chance to play at Arizona for a spot on Italian club Lottomatica Virtus Roma and $1.2 million - said he didn't regret his decision to play overseas for a year.

"I have my swagger back now," Jennings said. "I'm playing my position - the point guard. I'm back on U.S. soil. I'm back where my friends and family and my fans are. I'm real happy about that." Despite his subpar numbers in Italy and questions about whether his slight build can withstand an 82-game season, Jennings still contends he's the No. 1 point guard prospect in the draft. He's part of a group that includes Curry, Flynn, Spain's Ricky Rubio and Memphis' Tyreke Evans. The only member of the group who has yet to work out for the Wizards is the 18-year-old Rubio.
