Armed with the 10th pick in the 2022 NBA draft, the Washington Wizards held pre-draft practice with Badgers guard Johnny Davis, according to the Athletic’s Josh Robbins.
Davis, who was Big Ten Player of the Year, Lute Olson National Player of the Year and a consensus All-American first-team, averaged 19.7 points, 8.2, in 31 games for the Badgers last season rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.2 steals.
The former La Crosse Central standout can score at all three levels, defend any position on the wing, and possesses the versatility NBA scouts covet.
The 6-foot-5, 196-pound runner-up is currently projected as the lottery pick in the upcoming NBA draft. Should that come to fruition, he will become the first Badger to be selected in the NBA draft lottery since Frank Kaminsky in 2015.
The 2022 NBA Draft will take place on June 23rd.
