WATCH: Future Wizard? Washington takes fans inside Jordan Bone's pre-draft workout
The Washington Wizards will likely be without star PG John Wall for most of the 2019-20 NBA season after he ruptured his Achilles tendon back in February.
With the 2019 NBA Draft approaching on Thursday, the Wizards could be looking for help at the point guard position. Therefore, on Saturday, they held a private workout with Tennessee PG Jordan Bone.
As you can see below, Bone showed off his skills in front of Wizards coaches and assistants, focusing on his jump shot, driving ability and ball-handling skills:
“I just want to go in and be myself and show what I can do, show my skills and my tools,” Bone said. “It’s a great opportunity to be seen in this individual workout.”
With Bone’s speed and ability to score and pass at a high level, he’s somewhat similar to Wall, so he’d likely fit into the Wizards’ system well. The problem is that the Wizards hold the No. 9 pick in the draft, which is too early for Bone to be picked, and then don’t have any other selections in either the first or second rounds.
If they liked what they saw in Bone, they’ll have to trade back into the second round or hope the former Tennessee star makes it through all 60 picks without hearing his name called.
