NBA Mock Drafts: Experts say Wizards likely to grab Otto Porter at No. 3

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Wizards will likely be in position to take local prospect Otto Porter at No. 3, but they are also very high on Anthony Bennett.

The Washington Wizards were one of the big winners of the 2013 NBA Draft Lottery, nabbing the No. 3 pick after going in with the eighth-best odds. With that No. 3 pick, many experts believe the Wizards will take Otto Porter, who played his college basketball in Washington, D.C. at Georgetown.

Here are five mock drafts with their selections:

Mock Draft Wizards' pick
Jonathan Tjarks, SB Nation Otto Porter
Jonathan Givony, DraftExpress/Yahoo! Sports Anthony Bennett
Scott Howard-Cooper, NBA.com Otto Porter
Chad Ford, ESPN Otto Porter
Chris Mannix, Sports Illustrated Otto Porter


The Wizards need a small forward, so taking the local kid Porter makes a lot of sense. Porter would mesh well with John Wall and Bradley Beal, creating a potent backcourt/wing trio.

However, the Wizards do like UNLV's Bennett, a bigger body who can play both the small and power forward positions. Bennett is an explosive athlete who can score in a variety of ways, which would help a Wizards offense that struggled at times this year.
