On Wednesday, the Washington Wizards selected Casademont Zaragoza guard Vit Krejci No. 37 overall in the 2020 NBA Draft. He averaged 3.74 points per game in domestic play in the 2019-20 season.

The Czech national is not expected to play this season because he tore his ACL in a game earlier this fall.
