Four NBA draft prospects Wizards could choose at No. 10

Las Vegas was good to Davis this season. The Badgers’ star sophomore rocketed onto NBA draft boards during a Thanksgiving tournament in Sin City in which he dropped 30 points and pushed Wisconsin to a narrow upset over then-No. 12 Houston. That game gave a first taste of Davis’s calling card: his ability to score in multiple ways in the midrange and under the basket.

Davis offers a variety of attractive characteristics for a Wizards team chock full of forwards and wings (for now). If they’re looking to shore up the backcourt, Davis is a crafty mover through traffic in the lane, has a dagger of a pull-up jumper and solid defensive instincts to boot, even if his size may limit him. And at 20-years-old, Davis’s ceiling could still be sky high — he was Wisconsin’s top reserve as a freshman and made a huge leap to being the center of its offense his sophomore year, indicating he’s far from fully formed as a player.

As an added bonus, Wizards brass highly rates national team experience. They should appreciate that Davis helped USA Basketball win a gold medal in Latvia last summer in the U19 FIBA ​​World Cup.
