Michael Kidd-Gilchrist believes the Wizards will be a playoff-caliber team if they select him with the third pick in the draft.
“I mean, with John [Wall] and Nene? I think it’s a playoff team,” Kidd-Gilchrist said, matter-of-factly, when asked how he would fit in Washington.
Next season? “I mean, I guess. I think it’s a playoff team,” Kidd-Gilchrist said.
Kidd-Gilchrist is no stranger to winning, having won a state title in high school, a gold medal at the FIBA Under-17 world championships and a national championship at Kentucky.
“I want to win games,” Kidd-Gilchrist said. “That’s what I’m about.”
