Hornets win draft Lottery; Wizards pick 3rd

Looking on the bright side, even though it's not a top two pick it's still useful, and it's not very often (outside of the Wall draft) where the Wizards have moved up in the lottery. ESPN's mock has them looking at a guy like Bradley Beal if Anthony Davis and MKG are gone first-second overall.

Wizards will definitely take Beal, assuming he's there, which he should be.

Yeah I could definitely see it happening, Beal would be a good upgrade over Jordan Crawford.

The NBA draft is so hot and cold every year

Beal? ugh horrible pick at 3.

I'd say: 1. Michael Kidd-Gilhchrist 2. Jared Sullinger 3. Harrison Barnes

2nd round, hope Fab Melo (aka big dummy) falls to us or Draymon Green

Steal of the draft is where ever Kendall Marshall lands.

Conspiracy theorists called the NO win months ago haha.

Beal is the perfect backcourt mate for Wall. Wiz need a shooter... the knock on him is his height, but dude boards well for a 2 guard. He's got a tenacity that will be on full display during the workouts.

maybe if they bundle their 2012 1st & 2nd, 2013 1st, and 2014 1st they could move up to grab anthony davis

There's also the issue of it being illegal:

I figured you didn't; a lot of people don't. I've actually followed the NBA for a while and I didn't even know about it until this season. I found out about it during the whole Chris Paul trade fiasco.

I also just re-read my other post and I wanted to point out that I was not trying to be sarcastic/smug. I was just trying to provide some info on an odd rule. Sorry if it came off that way.

They have the worst system in the world and it doesn't do anything for the sorry teams or parity.

If the NFL did this, I would stop watching. It's no way to run a league allowing allowing the team with the 4th worst record to get the #1 player over everybody else. In fact, the year that Chicago won the lottery and got to select Derrick Rose was a crock.
