Ted Leonsis shared his thoughts on the results of the draft lottery.
“I was pretty happy, because you always want to get one of the top two or three guys and we’re going to get a really good player with the No. 3 pick,” Leonsis said.
Washington has picked in the lottery in two out of the last three seasons.
“I don’t want to be in the lottery anymore. It’s not a lot of fun,” Leonsis said, before adding, “Without pain, there is no gain.”
To that end, the Wizards have designed an offseason training program for John Wall.
“We’ve laid out with John Wall’s people, every single day,” Leonsis said. “Nutrition. Strength and conditioning. Shooting. Who he is going to be playing with. What he is doing on the business side. It just feels good that you can be in control of the outcome and these young kids are really ready to work.”
