Bullets Forever Community 2015 NBA Draft Board: Pick No. 11

Our closest poll yet came at pick No. 10 with Mario Hezonja beating out Stanley Johnson by only four votes.

  1. Karl-Anthony Towns
  2. Jahlil Okafor
  3. D'Angelo Russell
  4. Willie Cauley-Stein
  5. Justise Winslow
  6. Emmanuel Mudiay
  7. Kristaps Porzingis
  8. Myles Turner
  9. Frank Kaminsky
  10. Mario Hezonja
ESPN's Fran Fraschilla has been talking up Hezonja for months now, stating time and again that "he's the only guy in this draft that someday potentially could win either the Dunk Contest or the three‑point contest or both because he's a phenomenal athlete." He's 6'8" with elite athleticism and a pretty looking shot from deep. He has a certain level of cockiness to him. He always thinks he's the best player on the floor, which tends to flow into his decision making as a ball handler as well as his effort level defensively. He could very well be the premier swingman coming out of this draft, but I think it's one of those cases where he has to find the right coach to play under.

As always, here are your voting guidelines for who you should select:
  • Each day, we'll have a poll to determine which player belongs in that spot on the draft board. The winner of that poll after approximately one day will occupy the spot. We'll then move on to the next one.
  • You're voting as if this is the Washington Wizards' board, not necessarily a general list of top prospects. Weigh team needs as much as you feel is appropriate.
  • While most teams prefer a tiered system that places prospects within certain groupings, then picks the one the team most needs from that group, assume that this is a straight list. In other words: if everyone that you can vote on is available at the pick we're at, which player would you choose?
