The Wizards didn't do so well in NBA all-rookie voting. Jan Vesely, Chris Singleton and Shelvin Mack combined for zero votes while Cleveland point guard Kyrie Irving picked up one more honor, earning the most first-place votes. The only first-team member still in action is San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard.

The Wizards will learn where they'll draft this year next Wednesday (May 30) when the NBA draft lottery takes place. Washington is guaranteed a top-five pick.
