J.C. Chapman Washington, D.C. The Wizard should draft Otto Porter Jr. if given the chance. He’d blend perfectly with John Wall and Bradley Beal. Not only can he run the court well, he’s learned how to play disciplined basketball by Georgetown head coach John Thompson III. He’s great at the forward position and he’s a good rebounder. If he plays to his potential, the Wizards could make the playoffs next season.

Frances Jones Washington, D.C. I think the team should. He was an extremely talented player at Georgetown who was competitive and scored a lot of points. The Wizards need all the help they can get to be a successful team. I think he’ll be a good building block for the team and for players they get in future drafts. How the coaching staff uses him will dictate how competitive the Wizards will be next season.

Isaac McRae Washington, D.C. The Wizards should take the best player possible in the draft. If Porter Jr. is still available when it’s time for Washington to make its pick, then the team should take him. The Wizards have been so bad as of late, so his contributions would help. But rookies are rookies, and until they play in the NBA, you don’t know what they really can do. It’s hard to say if he’ll make the team more competitive next season. Hopefully he will, but that really depends on the coaching.

Stephen Edge Washington, D.C. I think it would be a good move by the Wizards if the team drafted Otto Porter Jr. He’d complement John Wall and Bradley Beal well. As a spot-up shooter, he would also add more defense to the team. He’d also help Wall by being a good outside shooter. Porter Jr. would make the Wizards a more balanced team. Anyone, at this point, would make the Wizards more competitive next season.

Kevin Bradshaw Washington, D.C. I think the Wizards should draft him. I think he’d make a good power or small forward for the team. A lineup with John Wall, Bradley Beal and Otto Porter Jr. would make for a really good threesome. The three are all around the same age, so they can grow up together on the court. His addition would definitely make the team more competitive next season. I wouldn’t be surprised, if everyone stays healthy, if they finish in the top eight next year – which would put the team in the playoffs.
