It sounds like you can drop all of those trade scenarios.

With just under three hours to go until the 2013 NBA Draft, it sounds like the Washington Wizards will indeed be making a selection at No. 3. Despite rumors flying elsewhere, the Wizards appear to be set on keeping their pick. Via Ken Berger of CBS Sports.

The Wizards had previously seemed open to moving it, as rumors involving players like Ersan Ilyasova and Luol Deng for the pick surfaced. However, neither offer as presented seemed worth doing, and thus, it looks like the Wizards will end up staying right where they are. This despite the latest from Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, who reports that the Kings, at No. 7, are looking to trade up for Ben McLemore.
