I’m hearing Harrison Barnes may be in second place on their wish list. Apparently, MJ is a fan. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Bradley Beal are in the mix, too, though I’m told MKG didn’t blow anyone away in his workout for the Bobcats on Monday and also hurt his back a littleESPN.com

The Wizards really need shooting, which should give Beal or Barnes a leg up. But I continue to hear that Kidd-Gilchrist remains the favorite. It’s very closeESPN.com

Evan Fournier

Would it be harder on the father or the son? “Both,” Austin said. “Because we’re both very competitive. I get everything from him. Obviously. He’s my dad. It would be different and be tough. But I think it could work out if it did happen. I don’t think it will. But if it did, I think it could work out.” NBA.com

Fournier is 6-foot-7 with a nice shooting touch and plenty of confidence. He believes he can make the leap from the first division of French basketball – he averaged 14.0 points for Poitiers last season – to the NBA. “I can play point guard sometimes to help the team, because I like to have the ball in my hands,” Fournier said. “But I’m a shooting guard.” San Antonio Spurs star Manu Ginobili has served as a role model for the French player. “I don’t have a favorite player but I love his game,” Fournier saidMilwaukee Journal-Sentinel

If the Bobcats can’t use the pick to make a splashy move, they’ll likely draft Thomas Robinson HoopsWorld

A deal for Evans has been much speculated upon everywhere. But the Kings are said to want a lot and would hardly add the No. 5 pick with him. Maybe you get the pick for Noah. Hardly Evans and the pick. Maybe you get Evans and the pick for Noah and Deng, which would be ridiculous for the Bulls to do. It makes little sense for either side. NBA.com
