The 2019 NBA Draft is one week away, and the Wizards have pick No. 9. But who will they take on June 20?

Let's take a look at what some experts believe the Wizards will do with their first-round pick.

NBC Sports Washington Mock Draft 13.0: Jaxson Hayes (Center, Texas) Ben Standig's latest mock has the Wizards going big with their pick, taking the lanky Longhorn Hayes. As Standig observes, "Hayes stood out during his freshman season with his mobility, length, rim protection (2.2 blocks) and highly efficient offensive game (72.8 FG%)."

CBS Sports' Kyle Boone: Sekou Doumbouya (Forward, France) Boone has the Wizards going international with their selection and taking Doumbouya. He's the youngest player in the 2019 class, but Doumbouya already has the physical tools to someday become an impact player in the NBA. 

The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor: Sekou Doumbouya (Forward, France) If the Wizards take Doumbouya as Boone and O'Connor predict, fans could be in uproar given the team's inconsistent past with developing prospects from overseas. Doumbouya is raw but has incredible athleticism and the ability to play both forward spots.

Bleacher Report's Joe Tansey: Nassir Little (Forward, North Carolina) Tansey predicts the Wizards will go for the hyper-athletic Little at No. 9. Little struggled to find his role during his lone season at UNC, but he's got tons of upside and the Wizards have a desperate need for wing depth. 

Sports Illustrated's Jeremy Woo: Sekou Doumbouya (Forward, France) Woo agrees with Boone and O'Connor and has the Wizards taking Doumbouya. The French teenager would be more of a long-term project than some other players in this draft class, but he's certainly got the makings of a good NBA player. 

SB Nation's Ricky O'Donnell: Cam Reddish (Forward, Duke) He's not the Duke freshman the Wizards would have dreamed of getting before the lottery, but Reddish would make a nice addition to a Washington roster in need of perimeter scoring. He's got a smooth shooting stroke and a 7'1" wingspan, and if his shots start to fall with some consistency, Reddish could turn out to be the steal of the draft.
