Byron Mouton joins the Washington Wizards

Former University of Maryland forward Byron Mouton has joined the Washington Wizards as a free agent. He will attempt to earn a roster spot this summer.

Mouton has been mostly viewed as too small to play small forward and lacking the skills to play shooting guard, but at 6-foot-6, 215-pound Mouton could easly stand-up to the physical play.

After not hearing his name being called in the NBA Draft it was most certain he would be picked up for a summer roster.

Mouton had some impressive performances at two pre-draft camps. At the Portsmouth Invitational in Virginia, he averaged 22 points and 7.5 rebounds in two games. Later at the NBA's main pre-draft camp in Chicago, he averaged 13 points while shooting 59 percent from the floor. He believed those numbers, along with his constant energy and defensive effort, would make him at least a second-round pick.
