NBA Draft 2013: Should the Washington Wizards trade into the first round?

Jerry Lai-US PRESSWIRE

A number of teams in the 20s are reportedly looking to move their draft picks. Is this an opportunity for the Wizards?

The latest rumor by Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski is interesting given the Wizards' situation:

This comes on the heels of a previous tweet where Wojnarowski suggested the Nuggets, at No. 27, are looking to trade their pick.

The Wizards, of course, have two second-round picks: No. 38 and No. 54. Ernie Grunfeld has publicly stated that the Wizards don't want three rookies on the roster next season. Put two and two together, and it seems like there might be an opportunity for the Wizards to package both second-round picks in an attempt to move into the first round.

Whether this is a good idea is a separate discussion, of course. Is there a huge difference between pick No. 27 and pick No. 38, especially when the former comes with a guaranteed contract? But if there's a player high on the Wizards' board that is slipping, it would be worthwhile to try to move up.

Should the Wizards move up? If so, for who?
