With the ninth pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, the Washington Wizards select Deni Avdija of Maccabi Tel Aviv.

John Wall is nearing a return to the court while Bradley Beal hunting for a return to the All-Star game. Now, they add a strong wing in Avdija. Lauded for his playmaking ability, Avdija’s arrival should serve to benefit both Beal and Wall off-ball.

If he can step up as a shooter and assert himself on the floor, then the Wizards’ youth movement just got a whole lot more promising alongside Rui Hachimura.
