NBA Draft 2012: 3 Best Choices for John Wall and the Washington Wizards

Despite having the second worst record in the NBA this past season, the Washington Wizards ended up with the third overall pick in this month’s NBA Draft. 

Anthony Davis is the clear-cut No. 1 pick and will be selected by the New Orleans Hornets, but after that the situation gets a little murky.

While being considered one of the deepest drafts in recent years, most people agree that after Davis there is a big drop off in overall potential and immediate impact. 

Fellow Kentucky star Michael Kidd-Gilchrist seems to be the consensus No. 2, with Florida shooting guard Bradley Beal and Kansas forward Thomas Robinson being a close third and fourth.

In order for recently re-signed Coach Randy Wittman to take John Wall and the Wizards back to the postseason, what the Wizards do with the third overall pick will have major implications on the progression of the team.

Trading down is also an option if for some reason Kidd-Gilchrist or Beal’s stock drops drastically or if another team makes a good offer, though much will depend on what the Charlotte Bobcats do with their the No. 2 pick.
