Today's Wake-Up Call takes a look at the Wizards getting ready for their big game against the Thunder on Wednesday, and we check in on some former Wizards.

1. Kevin Durant is coming to town

Wednesday night, the Thunder make their annual visit to the Verizon Center. Obviously, some people will be focused on recruiting a certain someone, but fans should be treated to an exciting game as well. The last two games between the Wizards and Thunder in Oklahoma City have come down to the closing minutes, and the Wizards have done exceptionally well against Durant at the Verizon Center.

As Nick Bilka pointed out, Durant's only two victories at the Verizon Center came while teamed up with Eric Maynor. The results speak for themselves.

But seriously, that level of defense in the first half? Players try harder in the Celebrity Game.

3. Chris Singleton to the D-League?

Chris Singleton has been looking for a gig since the Pacers decided to waive him at the end of training camp this season. According to D-League Digest, that next opportunity might come in the D-League.

Nice to see Singleton still trying to pursue a spot on an NBA roster, rather than go for the easy cash grab overseas.

4. How's Glen Rice Jr. doing in the D-League?

Glen Rice Jr. didn't waste much time getting back into the flow of things with his old squad. He had 10 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists in 23 minutes in his first game back. He topped it on Saturday, going for 22 points on 9-13 shooting, 5 rebounds and 2 assists in the Vipers' 160-153 win over the Reno Bighorns. And for those of you wondering, no, that game didn't go into overtime.
