2011 NBA Draft Grades: Chris Singleton Goes No. 18 Overall to the Wizards
Previously the Washington Wizards drafted combo forward Jan Vesely from the Czech Republic at No. 6 overall.
What’s interesting here is that he’s somewhat like their next pick, hybrid shooting guard/small forward Chris Singleton from Florida State.
Now, the biggest difference between him and Vesely is that Singleton needs to work on offense, while Vesely on defense.
Therefore, that may be why both were drafted to the Wizards, because they could benefit from each other’s strengths.
As for Singleton, well, he has the ability to guard anyone that’s not a center, and will be able to push the tempo along with point guard John Wall.
Washington may have had the best draft, because they counteracted the weaknesses of one pick, with the strength of another.
All while addressing the issues from the team perspective as a whole (21st in scoring offense, 24th in points allowed).
If there was a bet on which team will make the most strides between the 2010-11 season, and the 2011-12 season, it’s a smart choice to pick the Washington Wizards.
Now, obviously it will take time, but in a few years they will be a solid competitor among the Eastern Conference .
