Not bad for the Wizards and 76ers, who jumped from the No. 5 and No. 7 spots, respectively, to win the first two picks in this June’s NBA Draft.
The Wiz have a chance to take the franchise in another direction by selecting top point guard John Wall with the No. 1 overall pick. Zero seemed to have completely missed the point of a max contract. Maybe Wall can take Arenas as a warning, and play his way to max contract after a couple stellar seasons.
Here are the results of this evening’s NBA Draft Lottery:
3. New Jersey
6. Golden State
8. LA Clippers
11. New Orleans
