The NBA released its annual general manager survey on Thursday, and there was not one mention of any Wizards player or coach.

The survey asked GMs a variety of questions, including their season predictions, who they would start a franchise with, which team made the best offseason moves, and so on.

Wizards guard Bradley Beal, who just signed a two-year, $72 million extension on Thursday, was snubbed from questions regarding shooting guard lists in the survey. James Harden took home 86 percent of the vote for who GM's think is the best shooting guard, followed by Paul George with seven percent of the votes. Jimmy Butler and Klay Thompson received honorable mention. Beal did not.

Rui Hachimura, the Wizards first-round pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, was also absent from all questions related to rookies. No. 1 overall pick Zion Williamson is the heavy favorite to win Rookie of the Year, according to GMs. Williamson took home 48 percent of the vote, followed by Ja Morant with 29 percent. 

In addition to being asked who they thought would win Rookie of the Year, GMs were asked which rookie they think will be the best in five years, and which rookie was the biggest steal in the draft. Hachimura was not mentioned in either.

In last year's survey, Wizards point guard John Wall was voted as the second-fastest player with the ball, only trailing Russell Westbrook. But with Wall set to miss most of the 2019 season, if not all, while recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon, the point guard was left off this year's vote.
