Working Out With Kevin Seraphin

By
Updated: July 10, 2010

Checking in from the Atlanta airport (the people watching is great, as usual) on my way to Las Vegas for the NBA Summer League. I’ll be out there covering John Wall and the rest of the Wiz Kids until the 18th. I know, a long time to be in Vegas. But I’m good at staying out of trouble.

On Friday Wizards assistants Mike Wells and Ryan Saunders took rookie Kevin Seraphin through an individual workout as he continues to rehab a previous knee injury that will keep him out of summer league action. The 20-year old from Cayenne, French Guiana officially became part of the Wizards on Thursday when the Kirk Hinrich and 17th pick (Seraphin) acquisition in exchange for Wizards 2006 second round draft pick Vladimir Veremeenko was completed. Glad the Wiz didn’t give up a future second rounder.

Ernie Grunfeld spoke briefly about Seraphin on Thursday (covered in this post) and indicated that Seraphin’s buyout from his club in the French League, Cholet Basket, still needs to be worked out, but that he plans to have him on the roster next season. Check out some clips from Seraphin’s individual workout below … there are a couple dunks at the end. That shooting form needs a lot of work, but he sure is a wide-bodied player.

    Hopefully he can develop properly. Would be a nice compliment to Wall.

    He looks like he has a soft touch around the rim. Looks like a big strong kid and his jump shot wasn’t all that bad. Hopefully he can continue to work on that low post game.

    That turn around base line jumper was also impressive. And unlike brenda, looks like our boy can dunk with one hand. Here’s hoping that we just landed the next star in a new generation of french ballers.

    Looks better than Kwame Brown at the same point. O_o

    Are you guys watching the same video as me? This guy looks exactly like Kwame, horrible. He has an awkward shot that will not make it in the NBA, far too slow. He looks like a power player, but is short. Around 3:20 he is barely getting to the rim, what is his vertical? Conditioning is lackluster as well. Seems powerful with decent touch in the post, VERY unpolished contrary to reports.
