Happy draft day everyone! After months of speculation and debate, tonight we finally figure out what the Wizards have planned as they enter an important summer for the franchise.

Unlike previous years, when the Wizards had higher picks with less chances of variation, at the 19th pick, there are lots of ways the Wizards could go this evening. Here's a sampling of who some prominent mock drafts think the Wizards will take in the first round:

Based on what we're seeing in mock drafts, we're going to break down the Wizards' targets into three main categories, based on their likelihood of being available with the 19th pick:

Unlikely to be available at 19

  • Trey Lyles
  • Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
  • Kelly Oubre

Possibly available at 19

  • Bobby Portis
  • Jerian Grant
  • Kevon Looney
  • Tyus Jones
  • Sam Dekker

Likely to be available at 19

  • Justin Anderson
  • Montrezl Harrell
  • Delon Wright
  • R.J. Hunter
  • Jarell Martin
  • Rashad Vaughn

Throughout the buildup to the draft we've also been working on a community draft board, where we've voted pick by pick on how the Wizards should rank this year's prospects. With yesterday's vote for the 19th spot on the board complete, here's what our community board looks like:

  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
  11. Stanley Johnson
  12. Bobby Portis
  13. Trey Lyles
  14. Devin Booker
  15. Kelly Oubre
  16. Sam Dekker
  17. Jerian Grant
  18. Kevon Looney
  19. Justin Anderson
