Which Wizards players could get traded next year. And what will the Mystics need to get back into Finals contention in 2023?
The team held their end of season media yesterday.

Let the playoffs begin!

The Mystics are coming off a 12-point win on Friday against the Fever.
The second round matchup looks favorable for Washington because the Las Vegas Aces have won the tiebreaker against the Chicago Sky and are tied for first!
Only three games remain in the regular season for Washington...
The Mystics are coming off wins against Seattle and Las Vegas.
Yesterday’s win over the Aces and the Chicago Sky’s loss to the Wings could help set the Mystics up for a more ideal seed in the playoffs.

The Mystics beat the Aces in May and June.
Getting a Top-4 seed will also be difficult, but manageable because the Storm have a tougher rest-of-season schedule.
The Mystics lost to Seattle last month 85-71 despite Elena Delle Donne putting up 20 points.
This is Thibault’s second stint as an assistant for Team USA’s women’s basketball team. Former Mystics player and now-Duke head coach Kara Lawson is also named to the squad as they look to lead the Americans to another Gold Medal in the FIBA Women’s World Cup.
