The Wizards traded Rashard Lewis to the Hornets for Trevor Ariza and Emeka Okafor today. Seems like Washington is now leaning towards Beal now at number 3.
Sounds like either Robinson or Gilchrist for 2 and 4.
At this point I would love for MKG to slip to 5 and go to Sacramento
Agreed. Anywhere but Charlotte.
Maybe for fun I might do a Krystal Ball on the NBA Draft...
If I was guessing here is what I think for the Top 5
I was really hoping to see Wall and MKG together, but I would not get upset seeing Evans, MKG, and Boogie together. Especially with them originally being the Cincinnati Royals.
I would love to see Gilchrist end up in Washington too. Wall has been frustrated with the losing attitude in Washington and Gilchrist's attitude would be a perfect fit for Wall. It would be fun to see those two in transition.
Well maybe there is still hope, Fox Sports' Sam Amico sent out via Twitter that the Cavs are trying to trade up to the 2 pick because they want Beal.
Then the Wizards could still draft MKG.
It would take more than MKG to keep Wall in Washington, as soon as his contract runs out he will be looking to go to a contender, possibly in California, New York, or Texas. Being a high draft pick has its good and bad points, if you go to a team that knows how to build around you like Chicago, then everything is great, but if you go to a team like Washington, then you have Wall being pissed, a good coach being fired, and another high draft pick that will probably leave after there first contract is up.
