NBA Mock Draft 2011: Jan Vesely To Washington Wizards In Latest Draft Express Mock

The momentum for the Washington Wizards to draft Czech forward Jan Vesely with the No. 6 pick is gaining steam in 2011 NBA Mock Drafts. Vesely is the man projected to go at that spot in the latest mock draft by Draft Express' Jonathan Givony.

Vesely had an average workout in New Jersey on Sunday in front of Wizards brass. He was coming right off the plane after having his flight delayed from Europe. This was a tough situation from his perspective, as he's not considered an overly skilled prospect. Nevertheless, he measured out well (6-11 barefoot) and was able to show the athleticism that makes him such a coveted prospect. The Wizards are reportedly still high on his talents, especially if Enes Kanter is off the board. He would make an excellent running partner for John Wall.

Vesely is not a great shooter or ball-handler, but he is really athletic and has great court sense, two traits that the Wizards like to see. He has also done it at the highest level.

With the No. 18 pick, Givony has the Wizards selecting another European in center Donatas Motiejunas. However, Givony reports the Wizards may trade the pick.

Washington is not married to this pick, according to reports, and could elect to trade it for a future first, a young prospect and/or cash if the right offer comes along.
