Default ISH Mock Draft - #5 Overall - Washington Wizards

#1-Blake Griffin
#2-Ricky Rubio
#3-James Harden
#4-Brandon Jennings
#5-??

Again, Im putting my vote as Hasheem Thabeet. A C like Thabeet would be nice in Washington.

Im going to guess Thabeet might drop again and a PG/SG/SF will be chosen.

If Thabeet isn't taken yet, then I think they will go with him considering who the other centers are and how they like to be injured.

They already have guys like Arenas, Jamison, and Butler who can score and/or facilitate so i think a defensive minded big guy in the middle is an easy choice for me.

Thabeet is a top 3 pick. Steal right here. Thabeet gets my vote.

this whole thing is stupid.

No GM worth his weight would draft Jennings over Thabeet. Any credibility this idea had, is gone.

Kings dont need Thabeet.

They can not leave MSG on June 25 without a PG, Jennings is definetly the 2nd best PG in the NBA Draft and he is going to become a huge ticket sell out there in Sacramento.


Wizards take Thabeet.

Thabeet would have gone at 4 (if Harden went at 3) and been traded for Rubio at 2.

There is no way in hell that Thabeet slides to 5. No way in hell.

We're not swapping Rubio for Thabeet, If Memphis wants Thabeet we're taking him at #2.

Sacramento has already turned down offers to swap picks that involved Jason Thompson.

After Martin, Thompson & Hawes the Kings do not have anyone of value to provide equal compensation for Rubio if they want him bad enough.

They have Kenny Thomas' expirer. That's good enough compensation for the cheap-ass Memphis owner

But we have Darko's similar expirer on our side.

We dont really have many bad contracts outside of Jaric & Buckner but compared to other teams we're pretty lucky so far.

I don't really feel that the wizards should take thabeet

To the person who said Haywood is injury prone, last season he just had bad luck, especially when his game has developed so much over the last few years.

I feel Haywood is a solid to above average center when healthy, and Etan Thomas can back him up well ( but one of those two will probably be shipped)

So it doesn't make sense to get ANOTHER big man when McGee is still developing, and blatche is in the rotation, so if it's thabeet like someone said it will be a trade,

THE wizards NEED a strong PG or SG to compliment this team
I've been hearing some STAT and Ginoboli rumors, I would love to get Ginobli ...

Either way I think the wizards will try to draft Curry at this spot (since Rubio was rumored to not want to play for the Wiz) or use this spot to trade for an established SG preferably Manu
