This team needs a few no nonsense basketball professionals. One at GM and the other at head coach.
Wizards can't afford to take another "project" in Drummond (at the #2), when you have LEGIT NBA-ready players in MKG or Robinson sitting right there for the taking. Taking Drummond with Nene on the roster and with Seraphin's improvement, would be a colossal mistake.
I forgot where I read it, but one scout said that Drummond is going to either make or break whichever GM that chooses him. Classic high-risk/high-reward player. If he's sitting there in that 5-10 range, sure...I can see why someone would draft him there. However, I think it's not in the WIZARDS best interest to take him at #2.
Ernie is somewhat decent at identifying talent, but he has absolutely no vision or a clue when it comes to assembling a roster. Expecting a bunch of long athletic players who can't shoot and seemingly can't grasp basic basketball fundamentals to be competitive is a huge stain on Grunfeld IMO.
Not to mention he's responsible for fostering the complete lack of discipline and accountability that we've seen for the past few years.
DC Sports: The Curse Is Real
He allowed (in that trade) the Bulls to move Kirk Hinrich so they can have additional cap room to become the best team in the Eastern Conference.
Meanwhile, we are the 2nd worst team in the NBA. Continously getting worse without much progress.
Ernie is the dumpster for every NBA team to send their bad contracts.
Mentioning Jordan Crawford and Chris Singleton isn't saying much btw. Both of them would be the 13/14th bench players for any quality NBA team.

A recent blog post : The Risk of Competition
Ernie had something that no other GM under Abe had. He had much more control of the team.
I'm sick of the Abe excuse. Did some of you see the guy in his last couple of years? He gave Ernie a blank check to assemble a veteran team and Ernie got him Darius Songalia, DeShawn Stevenson, Mike Miller and Randy Foye.
