Organized by the National Basketball Association, The Summer League is an off-season competition wherein different NBA teams get together and give various summer rosters a try, unlike their regular season line-ups, consisting of rookies, sophomores, and G League affiliate players. It is also named the Las Vegas Summer League.
The Washington Wizards begin with their first Summer League practice on Wednesday morning, kickstarting a four-day ramp-up period for the five-game Summer League slate set to begin on 8th August 2021. The practice was led by Wes Unseld Jr., who was named the Wizards’ head coach in early July.
The practice held on Wednesday marked the very first time in the tournament that first-round pick Corey Kispert took to the court dressed in a Wizards uniform. He has been a four-year player at Gonzaga. Kispert’s shooting proficiency will certainly make him a focal point on the scouting reports of Washington’s Summer League opponents. Thus, it should also enable him to cause an immediate impact on the Wizards’ rotation once the regular season comes around.
Meanwhile, Washington’s minicamp is set to run until the team’s game schedule begins on August 8. The team is looking forward to conducting several practice and meeting sessions per day leading up to their opening matchup against the Pacers.
On the other hand, The Sacramento Kings also have a busy offseason to look forward to. The franchise intends to land Philadelphia 76ers’ Ben Simmons, as suggested by some recent NBA trade rumors. But the fact that the 76ers are only willing to consider offers that include Kings’ franchise point guard De’Aaron Fox will certainly complicate the trade talks.

The biggest names on the roster of the team are Corey Kispert, Washington’s first-round pick, and Isaiah Todd, who happens to be their second-round pick post a multi-team Cassius Winston, Washington’s second-round pick in 2020. Caleb Homesley is also looking forward to making his debut in Summer League. Additionally, Issuf Sanon, Washington’s second-round draft pick from the 2018 NBA Draft will be on the team, although his draft rights have since been traded to other teams. Their first-round pick from the 2020 Draft, Deni Avdija will not be on the team.
The Sacramento Kind, Davion Mitchell, was everything and more the fans expected him to be. He made clever passes as well as displayed his basketball IQ while showing his defensive process. He led all scorers with 23 points. Moreover, he recorded one assist, three steals, and three rebounds. He is undoubtedly expected to rise and shine once again as all eyes will be on him against the Washington Wizards.
