Washington Wizards Roster 2021 Washington Wizards Roster

34-38, 3rd in East Southeast

The Washington Wizards will be getting back a healthy John Wall soon, which will pair up with Bradley Beal as one of the better backcourts in the game. The Wizards have some strong young talent with Thomas Bryant out of Indiana and Rui Hachimura. Troy Brown has also been a pleasant surprise, who is a small forward out of Oregon. The Wizards roster is not far away from being a respectable team in the Eastern Conference, especially if Wall can come back healthy. Overall this group has a lot of young upside for the future.

2021 Washington Wizards Roster Top Questions

What to do with Bradley Beal?

With his free agency in 2021 just around the corner, questions are already beginning to be raised about whether Bradley Beal wants to remain in D.C. long term or not. Since the Wizards are lacking the financial flexibility to significantly change the roster, it’s hard to imagine a scenario where Washington becomes a contender over the next couple year. Will Beal demand a trade in order to get to a competitive team? If that’s the case, the Wizards would be wise to start exploring the market for him before that word gets out.

What to Expect from Rui Hachimura?

The Wizards decided to take Rui Hachimura with the 9th overall pick in the draft, an intriguing prospect from Gonzaga who figures to have one of the higher ceilings of his class. The first team All-American had astounding junior season for the Bulldogs, averaging 19.7 points per game while also boasting one of the best player efficient ratings (PER) in the nation. The question with him, like many of his peers, will be how his jump shot translates to the NBA. He did shoot an impressive 41.7% from long range, but at only 1.0 attempt a game it is a relatively small sample size to make any real conclusions.

Who is the Starting Point Guard?

The starting point guard spot has been manned by Tomas Satoransky with John Wall sidelined, but with Satoransky leaving for the Chicago the position is seemingly up for grabs. It appears as though it will come down to a training camp battle between free agent signees Ish Smith and Isaiah Thomas, and both bring a certain element to the table. Smith has served as the backup option in Detroit over the past 3 years and is a reliable floor general, while Thomas will look to make the most of this opportunity to try and show that he can get back to the highs of his 2017 season where he averaged 28.9 points per game in Boston.
