The Washington Wizards had a busy offseason, making a splash in their trade of Russell Westbrook to the Los Angeles Lakers.
While they’re certainly deeper than they were last season, Washington still has one or two things they’d like to accomplish before the start of the season to fill out the roster.
Ahead of the start of training camp, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reported that Wizards GM Tommy Sheppard would like to add a third center to the roster. This would be in effort to at depth at the center position with Thomas Bryant not expected back until mid-season. As of now, Daniel Gafford will be the starter due to this lack of depth.
To make things worse, power forward Rui Hachimura is out indefinitely due to personal reasons. He would have helped with that depth as he’s able to play small-ball center.
There’s still a few weeks until the start of the season, but it appears the Wizards are on the hunt for help down low.
