Though the Washington Wizards finished 2-3 in the NBA Summer League there were some standout performances. Here’s how each player performed in Las Vegas.

The Washington Wizards had a bumpy ride through the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas as a team, but there were many individual performances that the team capitalized on.

Because it is Summer League and these players have not had much chance to play with each other, there were major blunders happening all over the place. Also, for many players this was their first time playing with NBA-level talent and they had trouble adjusting to the new game.

At the end of Summer League, the Wizards made some reported moves official: they signed point guard Justin Robinson and forward Admiral Schofield to NBA deals and gave guard Garrison Mathews a two-way contract.

This was after the signing of ninth overall pick Rui Hachimura. Those four players were key to the Summer League roster and were among the team’s highest scorers.

Other than the players who were expected to sign with the team since the draft, more players got the chance to showcase their skills.

Troy Caupain had an NBA contract with the Orlando Magic last season, 7’1” center Anzejs Pasecniks was a first-round pick in 2018 and the Wiz got Jemerrio Jones, Moritz Wagner and Isaac Bonga in a trade with the Los Angeles Lakers this season.

Those players took on the bulk of the playing time on a team that was headlined by last year’s 15th overall selection Troy Brown Jr.

He did not get the playing time he would have liked, but he had a great attitude this summer and showed off skills that he developed in the G League last season.
