Wizards get visit from Schefter while in Cleveland during draft originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

All eyes have been on Cleveland—and Adam Schefter's Twitter—since the highly anticipated 2021 NFL Draft began on Thursday night.

But amidst all the draft madness, the Wizards came to town to take on the Cavaliers, and the most trusted source in NFL news apparently couldn't miss the opportunity to catch up with some of his friends from the squad.

Prior to the curtains opening back up on Friday for Round 2 and 3 of the draft, Schefter posted pictures to Instagram with Wizards center Daniel Gafford, general manager Tommy Sheppard and director of basketball communications Daren Jenkins, writing that he was taking a "draft break to visit in Cleveland with my Washington Wizards friends: [Daniel Gafford], whom I'm counting on the next two weeks; old friend GM Tommy Sheppard, and my great Lions' fan friend Daren Jenkins."

While the post likely gave some Wizards fans pause, there was no earth-shattering trade news to accompany Schefter's post—though it wouldn't be his first foray into the NBA.

During the NFL offseason in 2017, Schefter experimented with NBA sideline reporting, covering the Wizards among other teams. He's an avid fantasy basketball player, which explains why he might be counting on Gafford, who in 14 games with the Wizards has averaged 10.8 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.9 blocks—enough to help the Wizards ascend to what once seemed like an unattainable Eastern Conference play-in tournament spot.

With 9 regular season games left, Sheppard and his pal Schefter alike have a lot riding on how Gafford and the Wizards perform. Knowing that the preeminent NFL—and fantasy NBA—insider of our generation backs you can be a confidence booster, though.
