The night’s first trade! The Washington Wizards traded up in the draft to grab Kelly Oubre Jr. from the University of Kansas, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

With Paul Pierce unlikely to return, and Otto Porter, Jr. the apparent new starter at the three, this gives the Wizards some needed depth on the wings. Oubre is still a bit raw, but he can defend, handle and has great athleticism.
