No Bradley Beal? No Davis Bertans? No problem. With plenty of minutes to go around now, there will be lots of opportunities for young players to step up for the Wizards as they try to make the NBA playoffs.

So who is most likely to take advantage of the situation? Capital City Go-Go coach Ryan Richman joined the Bleav in Wizards podcast this week to help us answer that question. Richman is uniquely suited to address this question because he’s one of the few people in the organization to have spent time working with all of the guys making the trip down to Orlando.

Richman has worked in the film room for the Wizards, as a player development coach, as a Wizards assistant, as a Summer League coach, and now as the head coach of the G League team. He has also spent the last several weeks helping players workout and prepare for the remainder of the season.

Admiral Schofield, Garrison Mathews, Jerian Grant, Anzejs Pasceniks, and Gary Payton II all played for the Go-Go at various points throughout the season. Thomas Bryant and Troy Brown Jr. also both played for Richman on the Wizards Summer League team two years ago.
