Meet Your Draft Pick: Jan Vesely

With their first-round pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, the Wizards took Jan Vesely at No. 6 overall.

He immediately created a buzz by kissing his incredibly attractive girlfriend after being picked, and it’s clear that the Washington front office sees potential in the Czech big man.

So ... who is Jan Vesely?

Height: 6’11”
Weight: 230
Position: Forward
Nickname: The Flying Czech

That kiss had people more excited than the pick itself.

He has an interesting way of psyching up teammates before a game.

And he is a dunk machine.

Welcome to D.C., Jan!
