(Maddie Meyer/The Washington Post)

With the No. 3 pick in Thursday’s NBA draft, the Washington Wizards selected Georgetown forward Otto Porter Jr.

Porter was seen as an obvious fit for the Wizards, and not simply because he played his college basketball home games on the Wizards’ court. Washington was looking for a versatile forward to complement guards John Wall and Bradley Beal, last year’s No. 3 pick who was named to the NBA’s all-rookie team this past season.

We’ll have more from Michael Lee later Thursday night.
