On Wednesday, the Wizards announced their roster for the 2017 Las Vegas Summer League, which will begin on Saturday, July 8. The roster includes three players (Sheldon Mac, Daniel Ochefu, and Chris McCullough) on the team’s current 15-man roster.
Here’s the roster, as well as where they played last season:
- Ian Baker, Guard - New Mexico State
- Jared Cunningham, Guard - Jiangsu Tongxi Monkey Kings (China)
- Ike Diogu, Forward - Jiangsu Tongxi Monkey Kings (China)
- Jasonn Hannibal, Center - Victoria Roadrunners (2015-16, Mexico)
- Max Hooper, Guard - Westchester Knicks (G-League)
- Danuel House, Forward - Washington Wizards
- Issac Humphries, Center - Kenucky
- Kris Jenkins, Forward - Villanova
- Marcus Keene, Guard - Central Michigan
- Sheldon Mac, Guard - Washington Wizards
- Chris McCullough, Forward - Washington Wizards
- Daniel Ochefu, Center - Washington Wizards
- Kevin Pangos, Guard - Zalgiris Kuaunus (Lithuania)
- Jaleel Roberts, Center - Salt Lake City Stars (G-League)
- Devin Robinson, Forward - Florida
- Jalen Ross, Guard - Hartford
- Rayshawn Simmons, Guard - BK Prostejov (Czech Republic)
- Maalik Wayns, Guard - Maccabi Rishon LeZion (Israel)
- Michael Young, Forward - Pittsburgh
Now that we know the Wizards intend on keeping Otto Porter, all 15 of the Wizards’ roster spots are filled. The players who do not have NBA deals at the moment will need to hope Washington either makes a move to clear a roster spot, or try to get a two-way deal to stick with the Wizards. UPDATE: Michael Young has now claimed one of those two-way roster spots.
The Wizards will take on the Grizzlies, Heat, and Bulls in the first round of Summer League action. Then, they will play at least two more games depending on how they fare in the tournament round of the schedule.
But let’s not forget about the real story here: There’s a guy named Max Hooper on the Wizards’ Summer League team, and all he does is launch threes.
