Thoughts on 2013 Draft Options?

I, like most I assume, have been watching the impressive performance by John Wall and the rest of the gang (7-3 in the last 10) and found myself with conflicting hopes. On the one hand, it's great to see the Wizards playing well (though they've done so to close out the season many times in the recent past). On the other hand, I see our lottery pick (potentially) fall farther and farther back in a weak draft. At this point, ping pong balls aside, we'd draft 9th.

My question is, what do we think of Mason Plumlee? I haven't watched much of him, but from what I'm hearing he's more of a sure thing contributor than Alex Len. I picture him fitting in nicely behind Okafor for another year, learning and getting mentored, and then filling that role when we trade/don't resign Okafor next season. Plumlee seems to get points without being an offensive center piece (as Okafor has done this year) and is averaging almost 8 rebounds a game. He's described as a hustle guy who is big and athletic, and plays defense.

I know #9 is a little early to draft a guy not projected as a lottery pick (that I've seen), but assuming Porter, Noel, Bennett, and Muhammed are gone, I don't trust the one year I've seen on Len - he seems timid and lacking a winning fire - and I don't like Cody Zeller's game that much. Without a scoring SF on the board I think Plumlee might be the best fit.
