Wizards to host solo workout with Wisconsin guard Johnny Davis

Wisconsin sophomore Johnny Davis will reportedly visit with the Washington Wizards on Thursday, according to Josh Robbins of The Athletic.

The Wizards will first conduct a group workout with several prospects and will then put Davis through an individual workout afterward. Washington holds the 10th overall pick in the first round, which is right in Davis’ projected range after a strong campaign with the Badgers.

Davis, who was a consensus first-team All-American, averaged 19.7 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.2 steals in 31 games. He was also named the Big Ten Player of the Year after leading the Badgers to the conference regular-season title.

Davis had an incredible rise up draft boards this year. He finished third in scoring in the Big Ten and proved a dynamic scorer by creating for himself or by working in the mid-range. He had three 30-point performances, including a season-high 37 points against then-No. 3 Purdue.

The individual workout with Davis could indicate the Wizards’ interest in him, but the team will also do its due diligence on each prospect in their range ahead of the draft. The visit with the Wizards is the first known workout for Davis to this point.

The NBA draft will take place on June 23.
