With the No. 9 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, the Washington Wizards selected Gonzaga forward Rui Hachimura.

The Japanese forward continued to grow and flourish with the Bulldogs, significantly raising his production from when he began with the program two seasons prior. It led to the Zags finishing No. 1 overall in the AP Poll prior to the start of conference tournament play.

Though there are some consistency concerns, Hachimura has the build of a modern power forward thanks to his outstanding length and strength.
