The Washington Wizards have selected Chris Singleton with the 18th pick in the NBA Draft.
Singleton was far and away the best player on his team when he was at Florida State, and was named the Defensive Player Of The Year in the ACC. The Wizards hoping his defensive prowess can translate at the highest level, which would certainly be a boon for Flip Saunder's club, one that lacked defensive intensity.
The 21 year old Singleton checks in at 6 foot 9, 230 pounds.
Much more on this pick as well as the Wizards second round pick soon.
