Washington Wizards: Projected 2020-21 Depth Chart

by December 22, 2020
Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal of the Washington Wizards

After acquiring Russell Westbrook just a few weeks ago, the Washington Wizards got a lot more interesting. While in theory they have the talent to be one of the better teams in the East immediately, it also wouldn’t be surprising if the Wizards barely snuck into the playoffs.

We broke down the Wizards’ depth chart for the 2020-21 season below. We’ve also previously published a summary of the Wizards’ offseason.

Biggest Questions

  • How will the Russell Westbrook experiment work? He’s shown to be at his best when he is the primary ballhandler throughout his career. With Bradley Beal’s ability to play off ball and score in a variety of ways, perhaps this will be the perfect duo.
  • How effective will Deni Avdija be in his rookie season? Not many thought he would fall to the Wizards in the 2020 NBA Draft. Avdija has the potential to be a long-term starter in Washington, but it’s yet to be determined how much of an impact he makes early in his career.
