    The Washington Wizards conducted their seventh set of Pre-Draft Workouts on Wednesday, June 14 at Verizon Center. With just a two weeks remaining before the 2006 NBA Draft, potential NBA players will continue to work out for the Wizards front-office and coaching staff in hopes of making a positive impression. The Wizards hold the 18th and 48th overall picks in the 2006 NBA Draft.

    Glenn Consor, who recently completed his fourth season as an analyst for Wizards Post Game Live on Comcast SportsNet, will provide insight into the upcoming Draft and give his thoughts about the draft prospects that will come through Verizon Center.

    Consor's Thoughts:
  • Is a big strong banger, and has continually improved during his career at Stanford.
  • Is much like another former Stanford banger Mark Madso - limited offensively, more of a put back player.
  • Position rebounder, who can do the dirty work inside.
  • I like his upside - has decent hands, will have to adjust to defending athletic

  • Scouting Report: Has terrific size at 6-11 ... Excellent rebounder ... Solid shot-blocker ... Finds himself in foul trouble when asked to play starter minutes ... A good complimentary scorer ... Doesn't completely have his game down with his back to the basket, but he is getting there ... Prefers to spin away from the defense rather than into it ... He's got nice touch on his shot, but his tendency can make for some difficult, off-balance shots ... Best utilized as a fourth or fifth option, not a second or third ... A below average passer.
  • Stat Stuffer: Started his first collegiate game at Oregon as a sophomore and responded with a then career-high 19 points (9-14 FGs), seven rebounds, three assists and a block in 33 minutes. Tied a school record with a career-high six blocks along with ten points, seven rebounds and two steals in 18 minutes off the bench at Oregon State. As a junior, recorded 20 points and 20 rebounds vs. Oregon, 23 and 11 vs. USC, 18 and 10 at USC, and 18 and 11 vs. Cal, all over a seven-game span.

    Consor's Thoughts:
  • Raw, athletic track guy who is a converted hoop player.
  • Is limited offensively - no drop step, hooks, or feel for the defense on his back.
  • Is a tremendous athlete, who needs time, work and patience.
  • Has decent hands and foot work, but right now just a put back dunker.
  • Needs strength and experience.
  • Great upside with work.

His length and athleticism gives him an advantage inside ... An excellent shot blocker especially weak side ... Cleans the glass well with his length and leaping ability ...

His entire game could improve dramatically if his body strength and balance could improve ...
  • Weaknesses: Weak physically ... Most of his difficulties relate to his lack of body strength ... Easily gets pushed off balance when moving due to his lack of leg strength ...

There is some question how much bulk and strength he can add, without affecting his mobility ... Has struggled with confidence ... Does not have great range ... Should develop better offensive moves inside ... Scores most of his baskets on put backs and ally oops ... Desire and intensity are questionable ... Lacks consistency ... Decision making must improve ... . Free throw shooting is below average ...
