The Washington Wizards may not have an All-Star in this year’s game, but they will certainly be alive and well for weekend festivities.
On Tuesday, the announced that Davis Bertans will take part in the 2020 NBA 3-Point contest. Candace Buckner of The Washington Post was among the first to report that Bertans was invited.
