The main portion of NBA Summer League is over for the Washington Wizards. They played three games. After consecutive losses, the Wizards won their first Summer League game since 2016 with Monday’s 87-75 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.
Results aren’t the story of the summer. Performances are. Washington’s first-round pick, Troy Brown Jr., delivered a good one Monday. The swingman showed a versatile display of shot-making en route to scoring a team-high 23 points. Despite some shooting and turnover struggles in the earlier games, the 18-year-old’s confidence hasn’t wavered. “He’s resilient. That’s such an important quality, not just for a basketball player, but a human being,” Wizards Summer League coach Ryan Richman said of Brown.
* Washington’s fun in the desert isn’t over. It awaits seeding for the SL tournament, which begins Wednesday. Brown, Devin Robinson, Thomas Bryant, Issuf Sanon and the other Wizards will play at least two more games.
