Washington Wizards: Best and Worst Moves of the Offseason
Record: 29-53- 12th in the East- 23rd in NBA
Best Move: Drafting Otto Porter Jr. and Glen Rice Jr.
- A word could be thrown in for the Wizards retaining Martell Webster, but their best move of this off season has to be their draft (technically we are calling it one move), where they picked up two great players. Porter is a team first player that fits in perfectly to any NBA team, a great professional and coach’s favorite.

The Wizards summer league plan didn’t come to fruition this year. Before summer league even started, they learned they would be without last year’s rookie sensation Bradley Beal because of injuries to his ankles and a stress fracture in his right fibula during the second half of his rookie season. It’s concerning because Beal is just now getting over leg injuries that cost...

Tweet If you ask most NBA fans, JaVale McGee is still best known for his time with the Washington Wizards and personifying the knucklehead-era of our nation’s capital’s basketball team. However, there’s no denying the physical prowess and gifts of McGee, especially when it comes to his leaping ability. While playing at the Drew League [...]
