It’s NBA draft night, and the Wizards have the No. 3 overall pick. It is widely assumed that New Orleans will take Anthony Davis with their first pick overall. Here’s what that means for the Wizards . . .
* Michael Lee breaks down the Wizards most likely options — Bradley Beal, Harrison Barnes and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
* OKC admitted to wanting to move up for Beal. And . . .
* Beal himself said that Denver has also expressed interest in moving up to get him. Disinformation everywhere!
Here’s what we do know for sure. The draft starts at 7:00 p.m., and it’s on ESPN.
BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER...
* If you’re the golf sort, grab today’s paper for the special pull-out section chock full of info on the AT&T National in Bethesda. If you’re not the golf sort, check it out anyway. It has cool pictures.

QUOTE OF THE NIGHT
Michael Morse Tyler Moore on his simple approach to batting:
“I’m completely see-ball, hit-ball. I’m not up there trying to think about a curveball or anything like that. If you dumb it down for me, I’ll be at my best.”
