Don't get your hopes up, but John Wall's agent, the ubiquitous Dan Fegan, isn't ready to concede Washington will be his client's final resting place on Draft Night. "Who knows who trades up or trades down a little bit? When I saw those three selections, one, two and three, I was happy with all those," Fegan told Yahoo's Marc J. Spears. "To say something was 100 percent sure right now is unclear. If [the Wizards] felt that way they would have pulled his jersey out. That didn’t happen."
He called Washington, Philadelphia and Newark/Brooklyn "great cities, big cities, East Coast cities..."I’m excited about D.C. and I’m excited about the other top three picks, Philadelphia, New Jersey," Fegan said.
Wall, who apparently thought he was headed to New Jersey, texted with Fegan's former client, Gilbert Arenas, after the Lottery. He also said he was looking forward to playing in front of the President of the United States. Fegan represents, among others, Yi Jianlian, Courtney Lee, Kris Humphries and someone he wants to see in a big market, Ricky Rubio.
