Poll: How optimistic are you feeling about the Wizards after the draft lottery?

We’ll have an SB Nation Reacts post soon. But for now, here’s a quick poll opportunity.

The NBA Draft Lottery has come to an end. The Washington Wizards will have the No. 8 overall pick in the draft, where they won’t be able to pick a generational talent from France.

In a press release after the lottery. Wizards Head Coach Wes Unseld, Jr. said the following:

We will be able to add a young and talented player to our roster with the eighth overall pick. We began working on improving our team immediately after the season concluded and we’re looking forward to adding another player that can contribute while developing in our system.

I’ll be honest. Unseld said many words that have no meaning to me. Every team is looking to improve after the season ends. And yes, the No. 8 pick will be a much needed addition. The Wizards need cost effective young talent. So do the other 29 teams.

Anyway, now that I’ve more-or-less given my answer, go ahead and responde to this poll below. I hope to get an SB Nation Reacts poll out soon after. This poll closes at 12 p.m. ET on Friday, May 19!
