Greivis Vasquez Wants To Shock The World On Draft Day

Baltimore Sun sportswriter Jeff Barker had the good fortune of running into Greivis Vasquez at the Washington Nationals game tonight. Never one to shy away from the spotlight, Vasquez obliged Barker with a few comments on his recent workouts with NBA teams, and his optimistic feelings about the upcoming draft.

Former Maryland guard Greivis Vasquez says his workouts for NBA clubs are going so well that “a lot of people are going to be shocked” on draft day later this month.

Vasquez says he’s getting lots of attention from clubs that could draft him in the first round. He didn’t specifically predict he’d go that early, but his comments about people being “shocked” suggests where his thinking lies.

Vasquez recently completed a workout with the Minnesota Timberwolves, and is set to join the Miami Heat for a workout next week. Both teams have picks in the middle of the first round (Minnesota at 16 and 23, Miami at 18). Could Vasquez possibly be drafted that high?

This could spell bad news for the Washington Wizards, who spent extensive time with Vasquez earlier this week, and could be looking to select him with their 30th or 35th overall selection.
