Wizards Will Pick Third In 2012 Draft


There was a brief moment in time where the Wizards had a shot at the first pick. Three teams remained — New Orleans, Charlotte, and Washington — when ESPN went to commercial.

However, the Wizards’ hopes were dashed immediately after the commercial break as NBA deputy commission, Adam Silver, announced the Wizards would be picking third in next month’s draft.

Here’s the full draft lottery results:

1. New Orleans Hornets

2. Charlotte Bobcats

3. Washington Wizards

4. Cleveland Cavaliers

5. Sacramento Kings

6. Portland Trail Blazers (from Brooklyn)

7. Golden State Warriors

8. Toronto Raptors

9. Detroit Pistons

     @J_Pv10 It’ll be 1 of 3 players, in my opinion … Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Thomas Robinson, or Bradley Beal.
     
    I think Charlotte takes either Kidd-Gilchrist or Robinson.
    Right now my prediction is the Wizards take Bradley Beal. And I would love that pick.
