After a year that saw their best player, Gilbert Arenas, serve time in jail for weapons charges, the Washington Wizards' finally received some good news: they will pick first in the NBA draft this June. The top prize is generally regarded by sports analysts to be John Wall, a point guard leaving Kentucky after his freshman year. The Wizards were represented by Irene Pollin at the lottery ceremony. Pollin's husband, Abe Pollin, the teams' longtime owner, died late last year. The Philadelphia 76ers will pick second and the league-worst New Jersey Nets will pick third in the draft.
