Draft Trade Up...Into the Late 1st

The Wizards are set to have a lottery pick this year, but also two 2nd rounders (38, 54). The way this draft is looking to play out, it seems like it would be in our best interest to use our 2nds plus money to acquire a pick in the 20s. The reason is because we might actually land another star or elite shooter in that range. This draft doesn't have many superstars, but there is a nice foreign crop, elite shooters, and a lot of 7 footers in the 10-20 range. Those 7 footers like Dieng, Olynyk, Gobert, Zeller, Plumlee, Withey, and Adams will push down some Euros and shooters.

I've looked at NBAdraft.net and DraftExpress to compare rankings, but I follow Chard Ford's mock because he's so well connected. Some guys may be rated a little higher or even lower, but I've put together a list of guys that might be available for a trade up. We might have to stash a player, but there's about 4 Euros that look like potential stars in that range. Based on our system, we could always use another cheap sniper with upside also.

Dario Saric, Sergey Karasev, Giannis Adetokunbo, Alex Abines, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and Allen Crabbe are all guys that could pay major dividends, but will be long gone by #38. Saric and Adetokunbo are highly skilled, 6'10" SFs. The rest are all sharpshooters. While there are some interesting combo guards like Curry, Erick Green, Ledo, and some combo or stretch forwards, I don't think any of them ave the upside when considering or system and roster composition that the guys in the 20-30 range have for our team.
