Storylines to watch

Its been an ugly, yet promising summer league so far for Washington

There's no way to sugar coat it. After coming out strong in the game's opening minutes, the Wizards looked awful in their 94-74 loss to the D-League Select Team in a game where they shot an embarrassing 25 percent from the floor. However, the team is playing shorthanded without former Maryland standout  Dez Wells, and I can only imagine that the right adjustments will be made heading into Tuesday's matchup against the Mavericks.

Kelly Oubre hasn't been consistent so far in Vegas, but has shown flashes of a player who can develop into a dynamic scorer and an elite defender. There were questions about Oubre's motor heading into the draft -I had my concerns as well- but Oubre's energy, activity and focus hasn't been an issue so far for Washington.

Fellow rookie Aaron White's jump shot has been atrocious, but he plays with a grit, takes care of basketball and is an intelligent passer. As long as White doesn't force the issue, the former All-Big Ten selection should find his rhythm sooner rather than later.

Jerrid just wants to be Famous

With the Wizards frontcourt options still in flux, it has been fascinating to watch the emergence of former South Florida center Jerrid Famous. He had led the frontcourt attack for the Wizards during Summer League play, and put up 21 and 10  against the D-League select team on Sunday. Standing at 6-11, 240 pounds, Famous could be an interesting option to explore if the Wizards open up a roster spot later this summer.

The opposition

Dallas' summer league team will feature one of the all-time WCC greats in point guard Kevin Pangos, former UVA standout and DMV native Justin Anderson and Jordan Crawford, who played two seasons with Wizards from 2011-2013.
