NBA Draft 2011: 5 Bold Predictions for the Washington Wizards

It's been a crazy season for the Washington Wizards.

First, the hype about Gilbert Arenas and John Wall coexisting had fans anxiously waiting for season to start.  

Little did they know, Arenas was already on the verge of moving out to Orlando in exchange for Rashard Lewis in the middle of the season.  

Right now the Wizards are about moving on and forgetting the growing pains that spread through the franchise as their former veteran filled roster became "stale."

Wizards' Owner Ted Leonsis has made it clear to the franchise and the fans that he is a firm believer in building a franchise through the draft, like what the Oklahoma City Thunder did and the Portland Trailblazers.  

With that being said, it has put pressure on General Manager Ernie Grunfeld to pretty much nail every draft they come upon in the next two or three years, no matter how weak of a draft it may be.

Here are five predictions on what moves and prospects the Wizards may act upon.
