Kidd-Gilchrist works out for Wizards, eyed at No. 3
Former Kentucky forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was the only player to audition for Washington Wizards coach Randy Wittman and team president Ernie Grunfeld during the first of two predraft workouts Friday at Verizon Center's auxiliary court, performing a host of shooting drills as the Wizards search for a perimeter upgrade, among other needs, to complement point guard John Wall. "A lot of shooting," Kidd-Gilchrist said of the session that lasted approximately an hour and a half. "I did good for the most part, I think. I was real comfortable with myself." The 6-foot-7 Kidd-Gilchrist is projected to be among the first three picks in the June 28 draft after declaring early following one season at Kentucky, in which he helped the Wildcats win the NCAA title. The Wizards hold the No. 3 pick in the draft.
