Anything related to the NBA Draft.

The history of unused Wizard draft picks


The 2014 draft wasn't the first time the Wizards haven't used a draft pick. Let's look back at some of the other times the Wizards either sold or didn't use their draft picks.

Why selling a pick is so troubling


You might not think the Wizards' decision to sell the No. 46 pick is a big deal, but it reveals a deeper problem.

The Wizards made us stick around all night, only to sell their second-round pick to the Los Angeles Lakers for cash. The Lakers took Jordan Clarkson with the pick.

The Wiz should take one of these 10 players


After spending the past few weeks analyzing draft prospects, it's time to finally put together our preferences for second-round prospects that could be around in time for Washington's No. 46 pick.

The Wizards can find a contributor at 46


Picking at No. 46 doesn't usually yield much of a return, but this draft is deep and Washington has open roster spots to acquire useful prospects that fall too far.

Markel Brown was one of the lone bright-spots in an otherwise tumultuous season for the Oklahoma State Cowboys. We make the case for the high flyer at No. 46 with the Wizards.

In support of Glen Rice Jr.


There was a loud outcry from the Wizards community regarding the teams second round pick. Here's my thoughts on Glen Rice Jr and how he could change the Wizards' draft strategy.

Reacting to Otto Porter


The Bullets Forever crew shares their snap reactions to the Otto Porter pick. How did the Washington Wizards do?

Your draft open thread

Here's the place to discuss the 2013 NBA Draft. Who will the Washington Wizards take at No. 3?

Oladipo explains why he snubbed the Wizards


"I felt like I should go where I fit best and help me maximize my basketball talent. Just go somewhere where I feel I can fit best and help impact winning," Oladipo said, explaining his decision to bypass a workout for Washington. "I feel like [the Wizards] already have a back court set. They have a great program already. I just feel like I wouldn’t fit. Me and my agent [Raymond Brothers] sat down and we felt it was best not to go there. But again, they have a great program. They have great players — Brad and John. And they are going to have a great player to pick from this draft. They are going to have a great program and they are definitely going to start winning, because they have a young great team."
