Evan Turner Confirms He Won't Be No. 1 Pick

Michael Lee of the Washington Post is reporting that the Wizards will indeed select John Wall with the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft. The reason? Wall is working out with the Wizards a week before the draft, and Evan Turner, the other top prospect in this draft, isn't. 

David Falk, agent for Ohio State junior Evan Turner, said that his client would not work out for the Wizards. Falk and Turner were both in attendance at Game 4 of the NBA Finals in Boston. Falk said Turner would only work out for Philadelphia, which holds the No. 2 pick, on June 17 - the same day Wall will work out for the Wizards. Wall is currently scheduled to workout for the 76ers the day before.    

Turner confirmed that he's out of the race for the No. 1 pick, telling Lee that "I did all that I could do." I guess it's time to get those John Wall jerseys ready.
