WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- In what is probably the most distinguished honor for any 2011-2012 Washington Wizards player, Trevor Booker has been named as one of Cosmopolitan's "Hottest NBA Players."

The 24-year-old South Carolina native was drafted by the Wizards during the first round in 2010. He's described himself to me as having a "soft heart."

Orlando's J.J. Redick sits atop the list, followed by Minnesota's Ricky Rubio and Toronto's Linas Kleiza. Check out the full list here.

I would expect Booker to keep climbing the list, as his name becomes more mainstream. Even though a foot injury caused him to miss the final portion of the season, Booker emerged as one of the best Wizards players last season.

This feature I wrote on him should explain more.
