While being interviewed on 106.7 The Fan, Wizards guard Mo Evan shared his thoughts on the projected first pick in the NBA draft, Mo Evans.  The Wizards won the rights to the 3rd pick in the draft and it seems as if Evan wouldn't like to have Davis play for the Wizards as he doesn't seem to buy into the Davis hype.  Evans stated the following in his interview.

“I think that we’re in a better position having gotten the third pick, than had we gotten the first pick. I think Anthony Davis is a great player. I don’t think he’s gonna be the player that’s gonna, you know, be the player the most impactful in a franchise,”

“I think it would have been great had he come to us, but I don’t think he’s going to be, like, a franchise player so that’s gonna put a GM in a tough position to go pick Anthony Davis because he is number one. I think New Orleans needs more of an impact player, like a Kobe Bryant type player and I don’t foresee Anthony Davis being that player. I think defensively he’s a gem. He’s going to able to alter a lot of shots and do a lot of things, but I don’t think he’s going to be able to go out and get you 25 points a night, like what they’re gonna need."
