Wizards Get Bench Help
The Wizards bench has been one of the worst in the league this year. Yesterday, the Wizards addressed their bench by trading Thornton, Nicholson, and a first round pick to the Nets for Bogdanovic and McCollough. Bogdanovic has averaged 14 points a game for the Nets this season, and has had 11 20 point plus games as well. McCollough tore his ACL in 2015 and is more of a project, but he does have upside.
Ultimately, the move gets rid of Nicholson’s contract and it should make the Wizards bench a whole lot better which would certainly help them come playoff time.
