The Washington Wizards have won the John Wall sweepstakes, or at least the right to draft the Kentucky Wildcats star with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft after winning the NBA Draft Lottery.
The Wizards, who only had a 10.3 percent chance of earning the overall pick, topped the Philadelphia 76ers (2nd overall) and New Jersey Nets (3rd overall). The Nets entered the lottery with the best chance to get the No. 1 overall pick but ended up with the third overall pick, despite a 25 percent chance at the prize.
