They also take a look at if there’s any way the team can improve their backup point guard situation or if they’re better off standing pat.

If you watch HGTV, you know the biggest enemy of any home renovation is repairs. You see a couple kick off a renovation with big dreams of a fancy new kitchen, but once they start tearing down walls they run into plumbing issues and wiring problems and rotting wood. That full kitchen renovation winds up being new cabinets and one of those hypoallergenic, hands-free trash cans. At...
not only do the Wizards add some much-needed bench scoring, they also rid themselves of likely their worst contract. And while parting with a first-round pick isn’t ideal, Grunfeld has a cringe-worthy history when it comes to drafting outside of the top three; Kelly Oubre and Tomas Satoransky are the only two players Grunfeld has drafted after No. 3 overall that are still on the...

A Washington Wizards rookie returned from the all-star break as a new man. Or at least, a man with a new name. Sheldon Mac, formerly known as Sheldon Reeves McClellan, legally changed his name in his home town of Houston, Texas. The move became official earlier this week. Mac made the surprise announcement on Twitter with […]
The Washington Wizards are hoping that after the All-Star break, they are able to pick up where they left off. Since Jan. 14, the Wizards have a record of 15-2 and their both losses could have been victories but a buzzer beater shot by Marcus Morris and the miraculous shot by LeBron James to send the game into overtime resulted in those losses. Their first game after the break...
USA TODAY Sports Sheldon McClellan is no longer. The Washington Wizards rookie legally changed his name during the All-Star break. His name is Sheldon Mac — not to be confused to former Wizard Shelvin Mack. The former Miami Hurricane went back to his hometown of Houston, Tex. during the break and finished the six-month process to change his name. The name change sounds hip like...

Now, it looks like the team is doing what it can to continue this momentum.According to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski...
One of the NBA's recurring annual debates centers around the best backcourts in the league, whether we're talking present-day backcourts or all-time backcourts. It's always a fun endeavor, and there are myriad ways to settle the argument: rings, All-Star appearances, win-loss record, what have you.Welcome back to the Yardbarker roundtable, where we take a look at arguably the four...
When the Washington Wizards got off to a 6-11 start to the NBA season many of their pessimistic fans believed that this would be yet another season to throw into the garbage bin. When you look at what the Wizards have been through the past few seasons it’s easy to see why their fans are perpetually concerned. Can Bradley Beal stay healthy for a whole season? Is Scott Brooks...

Bradley Beal missed out on another opportunity to make his first career All-Star team when Carmelo Anthony was announced as Kevin Love’s injury replacement, and he’s not exactly thrilled with it.Speaking with the press on Thursday, the Washington Wizards shooting guard expressed his disappointment with the snub.“I’ll never say a player doesn’t deserve to be on the All-Star...
Over the last two Mondays, we’ve seen how good the Washington Wizards can truly be. After losing to Cleveland just over a week ago, 140-135, in an overtime classic that TNT’s Kevin Harlan deemed maybe the best regular season game he ever saw — if you haven’t seen LeBron’s buzzer-beating bank shot to force overtime, you must — Washington blew out Oklahoma City 120-98 on...
Remember when the Wizards were chronic underachievers because John Wall and Bradley Beal couldn’t get along? Neither do I, because that narrative wasn’t true. While Washington’s star-studded backcourt probably suffered from a lack of chemistry, they also suffered from Beal not actually being that good. To be sure, the 23-year-old was a solid NBA guard, but the comparisons...
