Wizards to work out Isaiah Todd of G-League Ignite


The Wizards interviewed prospect Isaiah Todd at the NBA Draft combine and have scheduled him for a pre-draft workout, the big man told NBC Sports Washington on Thursday. His is the first known workout the Wizards have planned.

Todd, 19, was one of the top recruits coming out of high school a year ago that opted to play for G-League Ignite instead of a college team. Todd was considered a top-15 recruit for his class and turned down offers from schools like Kentucky, North Carolina and Michigan, where he originally committed.

Todd played for Ignite alongside Jalen Green and Jonathan Kuminga, who are each projected to be top-5 overall picks in next month's draft. He played 15 games in the G-League, averaging 12.3 points and 4.9 rebounds while shooting 36.2 percent from three.

Todd didn't have the G-League success his teammates did and isn't ranked nearly as high in mock drafts. He is predicted by most to be a fringe first round pick, more likely to go in the second round. The Wizards are selecting 15th overall in the first round, but do not currently have a second round pick. They could still acquire one, as they have each of the last two years under GM Tommy Sheppard.

If the Wizards do get a second round pick, Todd would offer scoring and rebounding at power forward or center. 

"The interview went smooth. The interview went well. They were just trying to figure me out as a person and I'm feeling them out as an organization," Todd said.


Todd is originally from nearby Baltimore, MD and played part of his high school career in Richmond, VA. He finished high school at the Word of God Christian Academy in Raleigh, NC, where former Wizards star John Wall played.
