Wizards Will Pick Third in 2012 NBA Draft

Unfortunately, Zachary Leonsis's good luck charms did not bring the Washington Wizards what they ultimately wanted, as they will select third in the 2012 NBA Draft June 28.

Washington had a 19.9 percent chance of landing the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, but slid down one place. The Charlotte Bobcats, who had a 25 percent chance of claiming the top selection, slipped to second, giving the New Orleans Hornets the first overall pick.

Perhaps a saving grace is the fact that the Wizards will have a higher pick than they did last summer; they selected sixth overall in 2011.
