Among the players scheduled to work out for the Wizards on the final day before Thursday's draft is a sleeper to keep an eye on in Alpha Kaba.
While chatter is inevitable among the known quantities from Division I colleges, Kaba is a 6-10 Frenchman who played in Serbia and is on the radar, league sources tell CSNmidatlantic.com. The 21-year-old runs the floor well, is a good finisher at the rim and has a face-up game but how that translates to the NBA is guesswork.
Kaba is among the players scheduled to attend Wednesday's workout at the Verizon Center. He was supposed to be joined by Georgetown's L.J. Peak and Isaiah Hicks who helped North Carolina to a national championship, but those two are now not attending. Troy Caupain from Cincinnati, JeQuan Lewis (VCU), Tahjere McCall (Tennessee State), Jalen Ross (Hartford) and Hanner Mosquera-Perea (East Tennessee State) will participate in the 3-on-3 workout.
Ross is the son of Frank Ross, vice president of player personnel for the Wizards who arranges the workouts.
Predraft workouts are fluid and players can be added or drop for various reasons and rarely are an indication of a team's draft intentions. If the likes of Dillon Brooks, Tyler Dorsey or Monte Morris are gone by the time the Wizards choose 52nd, which is expected to be the case, a player Kaba will be on the radar with the understanding that he'd need development before factoring into the rotation like most players taken late.
