SBNation Mock Draft, Pick #5: Washington Wizards

With the fifth pick in the SBNation Mock Draft, the Washington Wizards, represented by Mike Prada from Bullets Forever, select... (Drum Roll please)

From Bullets Forever: I guess I go with Thabeet. It's not the ideal situation, since the Wizards already have a young center prospect in JaVale McGee, but with all the top shooting guards off the board save for Stephen Curry, you can't pass up on Thabeet's size. Curry was strongly considered, but Thabeet's long-term defensive potential on a team that really struggles defensively without starter Brendan Haywood is too tough to pass on.

I dunno, don't got much more than that. I'm bummed that both Evans and Harden got picked.
