Returning to D.C., after Xavier Silas was cut following a stint with the Wizards at summer league team and training camp a year ago, may not seem to make a lot of sense.

“This year it’s different because I wasn’t rehabbing. I was playing. I was working and able to get better at being a knockdown shooter from that arc and in the mid-range,” Silas said of his preparation going into camp. “It’s a legitimate chance (to make the roster). That’s what they said. They’re not pulling my leg or anything. I just have to do what I did last year.”

That’s not naivete disguised as optimism from Silas regarding his chances of being the 15th man. It’s the truth.
