2010 NBA Draft, First Overall Pick: Wizards Select John Wall

Well, it wasn't exactly a shock when the Wizards made all-everything Kentucky standout John Wall the first overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. For a franchise starved for a star, the electric Wall was the only choice who ever made any sense. Indeed, the team didn't even work out Ohio State's Evan Turner, so there was little suspense who Washington would take.

The only interesting question now is what the Wizards will do to break up the logjam they have at point guard, after acquiring former Bull Kirk Hinrich earlier in the day in a yet-to-be-completed deal, and with Gilbert Arenas presumably coming back from his gun suspension. Look for the team to try to dump Arenas' albatross of a contract some time before the beginning of next season.
