The Washington Wizards haven’t done very well in the 2019-20 NBA season. Therefore, it’s not a surprise that they wouldn’t be in contention for major awards like the NBA MVP, Defensive Player of the Year or Coach of the Year awards.
For Most Improved Player of the Year, that’s a different story.
However, Wizards forward Davis Bertans also received one second place vote for the award as well. Bertans averaged 15.4 points and 4.5 rebounds per game in the 2019-20 season, all played before the season restart in Orlando while also averaging 3.7 made three pointers per game. In the previous season, Bertans averaged just 8.0 points per game for the San Antonio Spurs.
Bertans is now entering unrestricted free agency. While the Wizards want to keep him, numerous other teams, including the Hawks, Suns and Knicks are interested in his services.
