The Washington Wizards' fate is now set. They'll pick third in the 2012 NBA Draft, behind the New Orleans Hornets and Charlotte Bobcats. This means that, for the 11th time in 18 seasons, the Wizards slid down from their original position in the draft lottery. Then again, things could have been worse, as they could have fallen to fourth or fifth.
Now, attention will turn to which player the Wizards will select in that spot. We will be posting community draft boards and much more in the coming month, but for now, we'd like to open things up to the floor. If you had to make up your mind on who the Wizards should take, who would it be?
For what it's worth, ESPN's Chad Ford has the Wizards selecting Bradley Beal, with Anthony Davis going to the Hornets and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist going to the Bobcats.
Analysis: Beal is a great get for the Wizards. The team could really use a dominant 2-guard to pair with John Wall. Beal is a very good fit who should be able to step in and contribute right away.
Do you agree with Ford, or do you want to see the Wizards take someone else?
