The Washington Wizards’ players released a united statement on Sunday night. This is presumably regarding recent civil unrest, which sparked from George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis last Monday and protests in many cities including Washington.
The statement is below.

According to Fred Katz of The Athletic, this was truly a player-written statement.
The players really were the ones who wrote this. This statement comes from them. First time I recall seeing an organization come out with a strong statement in this fashion. https://t.co/e7OhLkNG8s— Fred Katz (@FredKatz) June 1, 2020
