The Washington Wizards got their man.
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.
