The Washington Wizards have chosen Bradley Beal of Florida with the No. 3 pick in the NBA draft.

The 6-foot-4 freshman guard averaged 14.8 points and 6.5 rebounds for the Gators last season. Beal, who turned 19 on Thursday, joins a backcourt headlined by John Wall, the first selection in the 2010 draft.

The Wizards finished were 20-46 last season. Washington closed the season on a six-game winning streak, but missed the playoffs for a fourth straight campaign.
