Pollin': What's Going to Happen to the 5th Pick?

New, comments

Receiving the #5 pick in the draft lottery last Tuesday was the worst possible scenario in terms of picking up a stud player in this year's draft, but if you love cooking up trade scenarios and reading scouting reports for a wide number of prospects, this was best place to land in this year's draft. I don't think you would find anyone who wouldn't enjoy the simplicity of having the #1 pick right now, but since we can't change the past, we might as well embrace the future and the many draft day scenarios that come with it.

Of course, we all know about the rumors that have been swirling around the Wizards and their first round draft pick. Whether is pick is strictly used as an asset to get rid of some unwanted contracts and avoid the luxury tax or if it's being used to bring in another veteran who can bring more immediate help to a team that's built to contend right now.

Over the next month, there's going to be plenty of rumors and insider reports that i'm sure will change our opinions one way or another, but at this present moment, where do you think the #5 pick will end up on June 25th?
