‪Free Agent Options, could the Wizards sign former Kings Guard Ben Mclemore?

I'd definitely endorse this signing! He hasn't developed into a star but then again he was stuck in Sacramento, possibly he could do better in D.C. Also, possibly his best days are infront of him and all we'd need him to be is a good back up to Beal. He has good athleticism and has shown flashes that he can be a reliable 3 point shooter.

Quote:
Free-agent forward Mike Scott has agreed to a $1.7 million, one-year contract with the Washington Wizards, according to a person familiar with the deal.

It's the latest cost-conscious step taken by Washington to try to improve its group of reserves, which was a weak point last season, Scott Brooks' first as the team's coach. Led by All-Star point guard John Wall and shooting guard Bradley Beal, the Wizards went 49-33 and made it to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals before being eliminated by the Boston Celtics.

Scott has played his entire five-year NBA career with the Atlanta Hawks, averaging 7.1 points and 3.0 rebounds and 33.6 percent shooting from 3-point range. Last season, he had a knee injury and played in only 18 games with the Hawks before being traded to the Phoenix Suns, who waived him. He last appeared in a game on Feb. 15.

His best season was 2013-14, when he averaged 9.6 points.

https://sports.yahoo.com/bojan-bogdanovic-inks-two-year-21-million-deal-indiana-pacers-201703511.html

Quote:
The shooting specialist is on his third team in five months. One of the best pure shooters in the NBA is on the move once again, this time to the Midwest. Bojan Bogdanovic and the Indiana Pacers have agreed to a two-year, $21 million deal, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The veteran swingman split time between the Brooklyn Nets and Washington Wizards last season. He averaged 13.7 points per game last year on 44.5 percent shooting, including 36.7 percent from beyond the arc.

Bogdanovic started 54 of 55 games with the Nets before coming off the bench for the Wizards. The 6-foot-8 shooter really found his groove in Washington’s John Wall-led drive-and-kick offense, shooting 39.1 percent from deep in his 26 regular season games in the nation’s capital. But he cooled off in the playoffs, shooting just 35.6 percent in the team’s postseason run. The Wizards fell to the Boston Celtics in seven games in the conference semifinals.

With this move, the Wizards, meanwhile, are sending a clear message that they plan to match any Nets offer for Otto Porter Jr. Washington needs cap space, and by renouncing Bogdanovic, the team will have just that.

‪NBA Free Agency: Wizards reportedly have interest in Jamal Crawford

https://www.bulletsforever.com/2017/7/6/15930654/nba-free-agency-jamal-crawford-washington-wizards‬

Not likely to happen though IMO because he's 37 and at this point in his career I'd think he'd be ring chasing. Also, Cleveland is in the running and Boston so he could go there.

Just in case you felt like crying, this is who the Nets took w/ the Wiz #22 pick aka 3 mth BoBuckets rental.

Jarrett Allen, the 6'10 235 lb center/PF from Texas. He is only 19. He can score in all kinds of ways in the paint, is a good rebounder and has a solid mid range game with great form so presumably I think he could develop into a decent 3point shooter in time ala Markieff and Marcus Morris.

Ugly 1st summer league game for the Wizards, really slowed that they didn't have a great young talent on the floor like a Kelly Oubre type while Mephis had a few with SG Wayne Seldon who tourched Mac all gamelong with 28 points on 10/20 shooting and 4/6 from 3 and also PG Wayne Baldwin (19 points) played well for them against Pagos.

The inexperience of the Wizards players on the floor showed and how the players haven't played a game together. Also pretty clear other than Jared Cunningham that they didn't have a great consistent scorer out there; Mac, Young and House really played poorly as wings, I hope that gets better. It was really shocking to me because both Mac and House were on fire last summer league as rookies, they did not look good at all today.

The starting 5 really played poorly offensively other than Ochefu who had a double double with 13 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 5 blocks and 2 steals. He did some nice things inside, rebounded well and really played well defensively with 4 blocks. Pagos, Mac, Michael Young and McCullough were nothing short of trash offensively.

I really hope they looked the way they did because of not playing together and the Grizzlies have and the Grizzlies had Wayne Seldon who got playing time last year for them in the league and played amazing in today's game with 28 points. It's not likely that the Wizards shoot as bad as they did today, especially Mac, House and Young, at least I hope not. They didn't even play guys like Keene and Jenkins.

They only shot 34.7% from the field and 26% from 3 and their defense other than Ochefu was poor from what I saw.

Pagos: 8 pts (3/9, 2/4 from 3), 7 asts, 7 rebs, 2 blocks, 2 steals
Mac: 9 pts (2/9, 0/2 from 3), 2 asts, 5 rebs, 1 block, 1 steal
Young: 10 pts (3/13, 0/3 from 3), 2 asts, 3 rebs, 2 blocks, 1 steal
McCullough: 11 pts (4/12, 0/3 from 3), 1 ast, 5 rebs, 1 block
Ochefu: 13 pts (3/5), 3 asts, 10 rebs, 5 blocks and 2 steals
House: 2pts (1/5, 0/2 from 3), 3 rebounds
Cunningham: 26 pts (7/12, 10/11 on FTs and 2/3 from 3), 1 reb

Bolded were the only two highlights on the floor.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wizards-insider/wp/2017/07/08/five-observations-from-the-wizards-summer-league-debut/?tid=sm_tw_ps&utm_term=.39fed97a53d9

Quote:
4. An active McCullough is the best McCullough

The Wizards consider McCullough to be their 2017 first-round draft pick. He came over from Brooklyn in a trade deadline deal, and though he has technically been in the league since 2015, he’s still a bit of a mystery. Last season, McCullough spent more time in the formerly known NBA Development League than he did on the big stage — just 16 game appearances split between his time with the Nets and the Wizards.

Even Washington’s coaching staff has a limited scouting report on McCullough, because by the time he came over, the team was not practicing much. There’s only so much to glean from 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 runs on the practice court. Inside the Cox Pavilion against Memphis, McCullough, like most of the other regulars, did not have a strong shooting day (4 for 12). But he scored his points from the interior, throwing down an alley-oop pass from Pangos in the first quarter and later in the half cleaning up a miss with an offensive rebound and putback. Also, his final two field goals came at the rim — a good sign, considering the team wants to take advantage of his athleticism and length.

“He’s as much as a rookie experience-wise as a lot of these guys, even though he’s been in the league,” Iske said. “So I think just getting him out there and getting him playing is the best thing for him.”

Wizards lost to the Heat in their second summer league game. They led for most of the first half after having a strong first quarter but got out played most of the rest of the game.

Good news is that Sheldon Mac played better w/ 18 pts but he shot horrible from the free throw line (6/11), if he had made all of them, they win. Jared Cunningham again had a strong game with 16 points including a 4 point play.

Ochefu looked strong on both ends of the floor again (6 points, (3/3), 2 rebounds and 2blocks). It looks like he's a younger version of Mahinmi for sure and I believe even has more of an offensive game even though he's 7 years younger.

McCullough played better with 10 pts & especially the 11 rebs. I have no clue why he's taking so many 3s other than he's trying to add that to his game. He was 0/4 from 3 this game and 0/3 last game. Hopefully he develops a 3 pt stroke but he doesn't seem to have it right now.

Pagos: 7 pts (3/7, 1/4 on 3s), 3 asts, 5 rebs, 2 steals

Mac: 18 pts (6/10, 0/1 on 3's, 6/11 on Free Throws! What! Shocked ) 4 rebs, 1 stl

Young: 9 pts (3/9, 0/1 on 3's, 3/3 on FTs), 4 rebs, 1 steal

McCullough: 10 pts (5/12, 0/4 from 3, why? ), 11 rebs, 1 stl

Ochefu: 6 points, (3/3), 2 rebs and 2 blks

Cunningham: 16 pts (4/9, 1/3 from 3, 7/9 FTs), 1 ast, 3 rebs, 1 stl

Diogu: 8 pts (4/5, 0/1 from 3), 5 rebs, 1 steal He used to play in the NBA for the Spurs, Warriors, Clippers, Kings and Pacers. He is 33 but may be able to provide us with a reliable veteran PF who has experience. He is a good rebounder and interior player. He's played overseas the last 5 years - except for 2014 when he was the D-League player of the year. He mostly in China and been a pretty dominant player over there.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ike_Diogu

Quote:
On December 12, 2013, he was acquired by the Bakersfield Jam.[13]

On February 3, 2014, Diogu was named to the Prospects All-Star roster for the 2014 NBA D-League All-Star Game.[14] On April 25, 2014, he was named the 2014 NBA D-League Impact Player of the Year.[15]

On April 29, 2014, Diogu re-joined the Leones de Ponce of the Baloncesto Superior Nacional.[16] This year Diogu helped the Lions to win the championship over the Capitanes of Arecibo.


Jenkins: 5 pts (2/2, 1/1 from 3), 1 reb

Keene: 2 pts (1/2, 0/1), 3 asts, 1 reb, 1 steal

Robinson: 6 pts (1/4, 1/2 from 3, 3/4 FTs), 2 rebs

‪Wizards wise for adding Devin Robinson to roster

https://washingtonwizardsblog.monumentalsportsnetwork.com/2017/07/18/robinson-young-look-to-make-most-of-two-way-contracts

Quote:
Within that timeframe, the Wizards also signed undrafted free agents Devin Robinson and Mike Young to two-way contracts. The 2017-18 season will mark the first year NBA two-way contracts will be implemented. NBA teams are allowed to have up to two players under two-way contracts who will spend the bulk of the season in the NBA G League and not more than 45 days with their NBA team. Two-way players are paid a corresponding daily amount based on the number of days they play in each league. Only players with four-or-fewer years of NBA experience are able to sign two-way contracts, which can be for either one or two seasons.

The addition of two-way contracts will essentially grow NBA rosters from 15 to 17 spots, though those additional spots have obvious restrictions and two-way players will spend limited time with their NBA teams during the G League season. Still, adding two-way contracts emphasizes the efforts to grow the G League into a formidable minor league system. For those undrafted or looking for another chance to make it in the NBA, two-way contracts give players a a clear opportunity than a 10-day contract and a consistent agreement overall.

The Wizards will take full advantage of two-way contracts when Washington's G League team begins play in the 2018-19 season, but here's a closer look at Devin Robinson and Mike Young.

Devin Robinson spent three seasons at Florida before declaring for the NBA Draft. As a junior, the 6-8, 200-pound forward averaged 11.1 points and a team-leading 6.1 rebounds, while shooting .475 from the field and .391 from three-point range, helping Florida reach the Elite Eight for the first time since 2014. For his career, he averaged 8.9 points and 4.9 rebounds, while appearing in every game (105) for the Gators.

In the Wizards' five Summer League games, Robinson averaged 3.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks in 15.6 minutes per game. He clearly made an impact defensively and had some highlight reel worthy dunks and blocks during his appearances. Robinson projects as a taller '3-and-D' player who could also become a stretch-four with more muscle.

Robinson has of course talked to fellow former Florida Gator Bradley Beal about playing in Summer League and in the Wizards' system.

"He just told me to go out there and play hard," Robinson said Beal told him. "Us being from Florida, he played under Coach Donovan. We know what to expect when it comes to this game."

Robinson, who was projected to be a top 40 pick in the NBA Draft but went undrafted, is focused on improving his game as much as possible over the summer and into next season.

"Three-point shooting [is] definitely a focal point right now," Robinson said. "Trying to get to a '3-and-D' player for the next level. And the coaching staff is telling me to work on my ball-handling and decision-making."


Mike Young, a 6-9, 235-pound forward, went undrafted out of the University of Pittsburgh, where he averaged 19.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 2.7 assists. He was named to theA ll-Atlantic Coast Conference Third Team in both 2016 and 2017 and finished his collegiate career ranked seventh in school history in scoring (1,835).

In Summer League, Young averaged 9.4 points and 3.8 rebounds in 22.0 minutes per game in the Wizards' five games. With impressive size and the ability to guard multiple positions, Young has impressed the Wizards on and off the court. The team believes he can become a valuable wing player and hope his offensive game continues to grow.

"I felt like Washington was the best fit," Young said of joining the Wizards. "Washington was one of the first few workouts I had scheduled. Everybody knew me, everybody was great. Everybody tried to help me as best as they could, and made me feel real comfortable."

Both Robinson and Young may not see too much time with the Wizards in the 2017-18 season, but they're both players to keep tabs on in the G League next season and moving forward.
