If the NBA season ended today, the Wizards would have the second-best odds in the NBA Draft lottery standings. They are currently three games back of Detroit for the top odds and half of a game ahead of San Antonio.

Below is a round-up of the latest major mock drafts and big boards and who each outlet has in their top five. One thing that immediately stands out is how few of these top-fives include college basketball players.
