Report: Wizards Trying To Move Into Lottery For Frontcourt Player

Like many other teams, the Wizards are apparently trying to improve their draft position. The Washington Post's Michael Lee reports they're targeting another frontcourt player.

The Wizards aren't targeting one player in particular, but are considering trading up for several frontcourt players projected to go between picks six and 15 - Kentucky junior forward Patrick Patterson, Nevada sophomore forward Luke Babbitt, Baylor junior center Ekpe Udoh, Kansas junior center Cole Aldrich, Butler sophomore swingman Gordon Hayward and possibly Georgetown sophomore big man Greg Monroe, under the unlikely chance that he slips out of the top 10.    

But Lee also writes that the Wizards don't have very much to offer in terms of players or future picks. However, he does not mention the Wizards' cap space this summer, which could allow a team to shed a bad contract in return for moving down in the draft.
