NBA draft order 2017: Wizards have no picks in draft after trades

Barring a draft night move, the Wizards will not make a selection in the NBA Draft for the second straight year.

After trading their first and second round picks in 2016, Washington has done the same thing this season. The team traded their first round pick back in February as part of a deal with Brooklyn to acquire Bojan Bogdanovic and Chris McCullough while sending out Andrew Nicholson and Marcus Thornton. Then on Wednesday, the team traded their second round pick to New Orleans to acquire Tim Frazier.

However, not all hope is lost for Thursday’s draft. David Aldridge is reported after the Frazier trade that the Wizards want to make a move to get a high second round pick.

If Washington doesn’t select anyone in the second round of this year’s draft, their options for adding talent through the second round in the draft are limited for the next few years. They owe a 2019 second round pick to Atlanta as part of the Kelly Oubre trade. They could potentially owe a 2020 second round pick to Milwaukee if it lands between picks 56-60, thanks to the Jared Dudley trade. They also owe a 2021 second round pick to Utah from last summer’s trade for Trey Burke.
