Who will the Wizards choose with the #5 overall selection?

Another intriguing selection. The Wizards have a bevy of talent on their roster.
I can't see them taking a PG because they have so much money invested in Gilbert Arenas and have Mike James and Crittenton backing him.
I could see them picking Harden and moving Caron back to the SF position full time, but the issue here is that they're developing Nick Young to take over in the long run and they can still bring Stevenson back.
SF is the weakest position for the Wizards as outside of Butler their only other option is Dominic McGuire (mainly an energy guy) so they could use a player to fill this spot. However, there really aren't any worthwhile SF's in this draft.
PF is solid for the time being with Antawn Jamison, but he's aging and Darius Songaila is their main backup who is, needless to say, nothing special. Jordan Hill is a viable option.
To me, this really comes down to Harden or Hill. There are reasons for both, but I see them picking Hill since Jamison doesn't have much tread left on his tires and Hill could help reduce his minutes.
(In a dream world, they trade picks with us and we pick Harden, while they go with James Johnson :biggrin:)

BPA pick which should be James Harden let go deshawn stevenson's garbage ass & let Harden/Nick Young compete for the starting spot. They invested in McGee, Blatche which could rule out Hill.

The Wizards crave size, old age and mediocrity don't make for a strong front-court... Jordan Hill's their man.
I'm going with hill, but I don't know about that and I don't think they'll pick here anyway.
