In episode 87 of the Red Rock Fantasy Basketball Podcast, myself and Trent Skurrie (@Skuzz23), delve into the Washington Wizards’ fantasy prospects.
Trent and I discuss arguably the most exciting young backcourt in the league, in John Wall and Bradley Beal, veteran acquisitions Paul Pierce and Kris Humphries, the owner of the NBA’s number one nickname, the Polish Hammer, Marcin Gortat and a couple of Summer League standout, Otto Porter Jr. and Glen Rice Jr.
After winning a first round series last year, the Wizards are looking to go further and this is a key season in their development as a team. With both Beal and Wall motivated after being cut from Team USA, they could be a superb fantasy team this season.
