  • Bullets Forever: Five things we learned about the Wizards this preseason

    With preseason officially over, it's now time for the real season to begin. But before we jump right into it, what did the preseason tell us about this Wizards team?

    <strong>Washington is going to let it fly from three-point range</strong>

    If preseason is any indication of what the regular season will look like - expect a whole lot of three-pointers this year. The Wizards let it fly from deep this preseason chucking up 44.6 attempts from distance per game, the second most amongst all teams. Washington was a middle of the road team as far as attempts go last year at they shot 33.

    Bullets Forever: Wizards 2019-20 Season Preview: Moritz Wagner

    At this point, few pundits seem to be quite optimistic about Mo Wagner's NBA career. Yet to me, it seems that the low expectation/pressure high minutes opportunity environement the 2019-20 Wizards will surely deliver to its uniform bearers seems like a God-sent gift for the Michigan alum.

    Mo Wagner won't turn 23 until the end of the season. He's starting his second pro season (to be precise he did actually play a couple games in Alba Berlin in 2014-15, so one might consider this his third season). What does a player at this stage need the most?

    Fansided: Washington Wizards 2019-2020 Season Preview: Boston Celtics

    With Bradley Beal's extension signed, and the Washington Wizards focused on a competitive season, matchups against the Boston Celtics will prove to be crucial. They were already an Eastern Conference contender before adding All-Star point guard Kemba Walker in free agency.

    How will the Wizards manage games against Boston, in their race to the playoffs?

    With Walker at the helm, and Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown on a continuous incline, the Celtics will be one of the Wizards' tougher Eastern Conference opponents this season.

    One advantage? They're no longer home to Kyrie Irving or Al Horford, the latter often dubbed the Celtics' best player during his tenure in Boston.

    Fansided: 3 Washington Wizards that benefit most from Bradley Beal extension

    The Bradley Beal extension is good for just about everyone in the Washington Wizards organization. It's good for Ted Leonsis, it's good for Tommy Sheppard, it's good for Bradley Beal, it's good for his teammates, and it's good for Wizards fans.

    It's good for pretty much everyone except all the thirsty fanbases that were photoshopping Bradley Beal into their team's jersey because there's just no way he would want to stay in Washington.

    Well, he does.

    It's a great time to be a Wizards fan, as we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief. The 26-year-old All-Star shooting guard -- fresh off the franchise's first-ever 25-point, five-assist, five-rebound season -- isn't going anywhere.

    Washington Times: Leonsis: John Wall 'probably' won't play next season

    John Wall's rehab from a torn Achilles appears to be going well. The Wizards star is out his walking boot and as of last month, he told NBC Sports Washington that he was a few weeks away from jogging.

    But at a press conference Monday, Wizards owner Ted Leonsis said Wall "probably won't play at all" next season.

    Leonsis said he reads daily reports about Wall's health and watches video of his rehab.

    "We text and talk all the time," Leonsis said. "I think great athletes think that's fantastic. We care about him."

    Wall's injury caused the Wizards to need "radical change," Leonsis said.

  • Fansided: Extending Bradley Beal is a Positive Start for New Look Front Office

    After a summer filled with uncertainty, Bradley Beal agreed to sign his extension with the Wizards. In more specifics terms, it is a one year extension with a player option in the second year. Now, regardless of the trade Beal campaign or how some may feel about the extension, the one person who deserves a lot of credit is, Wizard's General Manager, Tommy Sheppard.

    After a roller coaster ride that led to Sheppard getting the permanent GM position, it was clear that the biggest hurdle that he would have to jump is attempting to keep Beal around long term.

    It's a great time to be a DC sports fan. The Washington Mystics are fresh off their first-ever WNBA championship in franchise history. The Washington Nationals are going to their first-ever World Series in franchise history. The Washington Capitals look like an NHL contender once again. And the Washington Wizards just signed Bradley Beal to a contract extension.

    Thursday morning, the NBA's favorite hypothetical - 'Where will the Wizards trade Bradley Beal?' - died. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski was first to break the news. Bradley Beal is staying in DC. The All-Star shooting guard signed a two-year, $72 million contract extension, keeping him with the Wizards through 2022.
