On Monday, Wizards forward Rui Hachimura was named a member of the NBA Summer League Second Team. He averaged 19.3 points and 7.0 rebounds for Washington, who went 2-3 in the Vegas League from July 5 to 15.

Hachimura hasn’t just played well on the court. He was also a star off of it, especially with Japanese media asking him questions after every game.
