2011 NBA Mock Draft: Washington Wizards Taking Jan Vesely In Draft Express' Mock

The 2011 NBA Mock Draft season can now officially begin with the conclusion of the 2011 NBA Draft lottery. The Cleveland Cavaliers got lucky, moving up to the No. 1 and No. 4 spots, while the Washington Wizards were unlucky to fall to the No. 6 spot, which was about as bad as they could have done. Now, the Wizards will have a tough choice to make.

In Draft Express' first mock draft, the Wizards are taking Jan Vesely, a 6'11'' combo forward from the Czech Republic. Vesely is very gifted at 21 years old, but struggled this season and needs a lot of work on his shot. The Wizards certainly could use help at small forward, though, and Vesely would have been a lottery pick had he come out last season.

With the No. 18 pick, Draft Express has the Wizards taking Jordan Hamilton, a swingman from Texas. Hamilton would probably act as insurance in case Nick Young departs in free agency. Trey Thompson, a power forward from Georgia, is the Wizards' pick at No. 34.
