As you may or may not know, I’m in New York City, at Madison Square Garden, covering the 2010 NBA Draft, one that will go down in history for the Washington Wizards.
As you also probably know by now, the Wizards have arranged to acquire the 17th pick in tonight’s draft along with Kirk Hinrich in exchange for providing the Chicago Bulls with precious, precious cap space. The deal can’t be official until July 8th, you can read the details about it here. Hence, when the 17th pick is called tonight, he’ll likely be a Bull for a couple days.
Nonetheless, I stopped and chatted with Coach Fran Fraschilla about who the Wizards might be targeting with the 17th pick, i.e., telling Chicago who to select.
Many thanks to Coach Fraschilla for taking time to talk.
