Unlike the rest of the NBA, summer has been uneventful for the Washington Wizards. As they prepare for the next few years, here are grades for each move during this 2019 offseason.

The Washington Wizards had a quiet 2019 offseason compared to the craziness and hype of the rest of the NBA. They were financially restricted, which forced them to fold easily on most of the big-money free agents.

By drafting Rui Hachimura with the No. 9 pick in the NBA Draft, the Wizards began a conservative offseason that focused on building upon a foundation for basketball in the nation’s capital.

The Washington Wizards significantly bolstered their bench by acquiring some free agents who will compete for minutes and traded for other young role players with potential.

They also picked up a few rookies who could bounce between the NBA team and the G League affiliate Capital City Go-Go.

Newly appointed general manager Tommy Sheppard established that this season will not be for winning, but rather setting the team up for the following year when point guard John Wall has time to heal up after a big injury.

Overall, this was a solid offseason for the team while keeping in mind that none of these moves had a win-now mentality.

In chronological order, here are the grades for every move the team made, followed by a final grade for the entire offseason for the Washington Wizards.
