Video: John Wall on Beal, “We got exactly who we wanted.”

Jun 29, 2012, 9:58 AM EDT

The Washington Wizards got their man.

After their trade last week to bring in Trevor Ariza and Emeka Okafor, four-fifths of the Wizards starting lineup was set. They needed a two guard.

Thursday night they drafted the best two guard on the board in Bradley Beal out of Florida. Draft picks are always a risk, but this is about as good of one as the Wizards could have gotten. They have the pieces to be a playoff team in the East next season. That is a step forward for them.

Wall and Beal could be a good backcourt there for a long time.
