At Wizards Media Day, I was able to grab rookie Admiral Schofield out of Tennessee for a quick chat. The small forward who can switch and play the four-spot was drafted in the second round of the 2019 draft by the Philadelphia 76ers but was then traded to Washington.
Schofield gave me his take on the upcoming season with the Wizards, expectations if any, and I even threw in a question about the winning Washington Mystics as well. He even mentions his reaction as well as his family on being drafted and all the feels.
Each answer was filled with pure joy and excitement as Schofield awaited his turn for the Intro Shoot photos. I mean what can you expect when you’ve played for a SEC team making it to the Sweet Sixteen and then being drafted to the pros all in the same year.
Here’s Admiral Schofield breaking it down for us!
