NBA Draft 2012 Rumors: Wizards Debating Between Taking Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Bradley Beal With No. 3 Pick, According To Report

With the New Orleans Hornets expected to take Anthony Davis with the number one overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, either Florida's Bradley Beal or Kentucky's Michael Kidd-Glichrist -- if not both -- will be available when the Washington Wizards make the No. 3 pick.

According to ESPN's Chad Ford, the Wizards have been eyeing Beal and Kidd-Gilchrist for a while now:

The Wizards like where they are in the draft. They've been debating between Kidd-Gilchrist and Beal for months. If one of them is off the board, they'll be happy with the other.

Beal averaged 14.8 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists for Florida, while Kidd-Gilchrist put up 11.9 points. 7.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists. Both declared for the draft after one year of college ball.
