Wizards select Georgetown F Porter 3rd
June 27, 2013
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Wizards have selected Georgetown sophomore Otto Porter, Jr. with the third pick in the NBA draft.
The 6-foot-8 Porter provides the Wizards a small forward to go with a backcourt of former first-round picks John Wall and Bradley Beal.
Porter - the Big East Player of the Year - is very familiar with the Wizards' home floor because he played on it the past two seasons with the Hoyas.
The pick came after Cleveland took UNLV forward Anthony Bennett with the first overall pick and Orlando selected center Victor Oladipo of Indiana.
The 20-year-old Porter led the Hoyas last season with 16.2 points and 6.8 rebounds a game.
The Wizards have two picks in the second round, at 38th and 54th overall.
