Of course the first team that drops...Knicks.

Chris Miller

Have to admit after spending five straight years covering the @NBA draft lottery, I'm soooooo glad to be watching it at home.

Ben Standig

Take two: All we know for sure is the Lakers won't pick 3rd seeing as Byron Scott doesn't believe in 3's.

Seems like Emmanuel was in a bad Mudiay during that interview.

But did Jahlil ever use Paul Pierce in 2K?

I'd like: 1) Lakers 2) TWolves 3) Jazz

Former USC walk-on QB Anthony Neyer was surprised he received a tryout at #Redskins minicamp. He didn't complain: wtim.es/1IKbDmU

If the Kings win the lottery, how long until #WizardsTwitter starts creating Boogie2DC memes. Seconds or seconds?

This must be Russell Westbrook's sweet brother who works with Cliff Paul.

If you're against everything the 76ers are doing with their team, root against this. twitter.com/BenStandig/sta…

Ben Standig

If you're a Wizards fan and care about the SE division, root for a team to jump the Heat. Pick conveyed to 76ers if outside top 10.

For first time in 21 years, NBA conference finals don’t include #spurs, #heat, #lakers or #bulls. Teams combined for 16 titles in that span

Caught up with JT3 to talk Otto Porter. Ended up discussing new recruiting world of 'free agency.' bit.ly/1IJiXPK #Hoyas

Mike Prada

However, if that fails, the Knicks could also just sign Joel Anthony.

Mike Prada

Rooting for Towns to the Knicks so we get the Cleanthony/Carmelo Anthony/Karl-Anthony frontcourt.

Report: John Calipari interested in the Pelicans job. He makes 8 mill a year at UK. Can he make that in the NBA just coaching?

I don't get GMSM feeling "desperate" to justify RG3 investment. Not his pick. Which makes this Scherff take scary. http://t.co/PaActRV4E4

A tip of the hat to my guys TStro Skinny Man @J. Michael Falgoust @Ben Standig @JdotBrown all season long for their excellent Wizards coverage on CSN

Gooden: "I think u've found a position for these tweeners. You call them stretch 4s now. So thank God for the tweeners. I think we made it."

Chris Miller

I was just told this. “Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die”. Words to live by.

Zac Boyer

Knew there was a connection here but honestly couldn't remember. twitter.com/bmcnally14/sta…

Zac Boyer

#Redskins also signed free-agent OLB Alonzo Highsmith Jr., the son of the former running back who was the No. 3 pick in 1987, when i was 1.

Zac Boyer

#Redskins waived OT Brey Cook, LB James Gayle (injured), DE LaKendrick Ross, WR Tyler Rutenbeck and QB Connor Halliday (left squad).

Zac Boyer

#Redskins signed five players from tryout: OT Tovar Allen, OLB Houston Bates, ILB Dasman MacCullum, QB Hutson Mason, DE Daryl Waud.

Wizards will be back at Las Vegas summer league. July 10-20 at UNLV.

Ben Standig

Nene on Pierce: "He is the Truth (and) the answer the way he makes shots. .. .At the last moment of the game...helps you do the magic work."

Zac Boyer

An emotional end to Capitals GM Brian MacLellan's first season brings plenty of questions heading into the summer: wtim.es/1JtHlUA

Ben Standig

NBA announces Las Vegas summer league runs July 10-20 at UNLV. Wizards going once again, though super doubtful anyone on current roster.

Jorge Castillo

Wittman on how his last 48 hours have been: "It just sucks."

Jorge Castillo

Beal: "I think if I can put together a full season, I can be one of the elite players in this league."

Jorge Castillo

Gortat referred to Gooden as "Drewski" once in his exit interview.

Jorge Castillo

Humphries started working on 3-point shot a lot at practice the last month or so.

Jorge Castillo

Humphries on whether he will start shooting 3s next season: "Yeah, man, you've seen me. I'm out there on fire, right? You seen me."

Ben Standig

Also no media exit interviews with Seraphin or Webster.

Jorge Castillo

Pierce isn't doing exit interviews with the media today.

Ben Standig

Drew Gooden said he would love to return, but he understands the business. He's no longer receiving that amnesty money from the Bucks.

Ben Standig

Just finding out we're not getting Pierce today. He's gone. For today, at least.

Jorge Castillo

Nene on playing more 5: “I hope not.” Said he’d be ok with coming off the bench tho.

Mike Prada

We’re also reaching the point where everyone wants to go smaller, so finding undervalued players to make it possible is harder.

Mike Prada

Really interesting to see how both Washington and Indiana retool their rosters to play smaller. Because that requires a full commitment.

Ben Standig

Wondering If Bradley Beal is over the series loss yet? "I hope nobody wins (the title)." Thinks Wiz should have downed Hawks 4-1.

Jorge Castillo

Beal said the Wizards should’ve beaten the Hawks 4-1.

Paul Pierce just arrived. Wearing a Nats hat.

Honest response and actually milder than many expected. He wanted to play in the 4Q. Same with all players. twitter.com/Todd_Dybas/sta…

Zac Boyer

No buyouts in the plans, MacLellan said, though he hesitated. Given a desire to pursue top-line RW, trade is probably a first option.

Zac Boyer

MacLellan said he understands that it's not a complete success after the second round, but it represents a step in the right direction.

Zac Boyer

Asked how his first year went, MacLellan took a second, paused and wiped his eyes. He was proud of how the whole thing went.

Ben Standig

Butler on why Otto shined in playoffs: "Pressure busts pipes or makes diamonds. I think he just responded to the pressure of the playoffs."

Zac Boyer

MacLellan: "I would say the next three, four years, for sure" is probably the window for Ovechkin to win a Stanley Cup.

Zac Boyer

MacLellan believes Burakovsky can be a natural center, but if he's going to be a top-six forward, it will be on the wing.

Zac Boyer

MacLellan on Glencross trade: "If we win that game 1-0, it's a great trade."

Zac Boyer

Schmidt and Orlov are in the plans for next year. Green's situation dictates Gleason's return.

Mike Prada

If I’m the Rockets, I would stick to mostly traditional matchups and have Ariza guard Klay. Play improved when they did that vs. the Clips
