The Wizards have put together a nice team
The Wizards have one of the best young backcourts in the NBA today. I'm not a huge fan of John Wall, but I think he's one of the best scoring point guards in the game, if not the best with Rose out of action for the past two seasons. Wall could take a lesson or two from another former Kentucky point guard in Rondo. Wall did have a career-high in assist last year with 8.8 assists a game. Bradley Beal also showed great growth in his second season. He averaged 17 points, 3 assists, and 3 rebounds per game for the Wiz.
The Wizards have been busy this summer. They've actually set off fireworks.. They retained Gortat, they signed Paul Pierce, and Kris Humphries. They traded for DeJuan Blair, and they also retained Drew Gooden, with Andre Miller a late signing from last year. The Wizards also extended Randy Wittman's contract. This is a nice core of young and old. I still think the Wizards have a lot of question marks. But adding Paul Pierce into the mix means more for budding superstars Beal and Wall. Paul can truly reach them and teach them.
The East is wide open as I've said. The Wizards have built a deep roster, and with so many question marks in the air about certain teams. The Wizards could somehow reach the Finals. Anything can happen in the East.
