6. Washington Wizards

The No. 9 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft belonged to the Washington Wizards and they used it to select Rui Hachimura. The 6-8 forward was coming off an impressive season with Gonzaga and managed to solidify himself as a top 10 selection in this class.

With the Wizards already having Bradley Beal at shooting guard and John Wall coming back from injury at some point, the selection of a frontcourt piece is understandable. However, Herro could have provided helpful contributions as a heavy-minutes sixth man

Having an interior oriented forward like Hachimura that isn’t particularly great at any one area doesn’t seem to be more valuable than a sharpshooter with passing ability. Overall, there is just plenty of more options within a successful half-court offense with Herro.

The Wizards will need Hachimura to find a niche and hopefully, it’s a helpful one in a playoff setting. Teams likely will favor leaving him open in spot-up situations while also being able to more easily crowd the paint when he’s inside the arc.
