On top of those two, they added power forward Rui Hachimura, a 22-year-old lottery pick from a season ago. Those three will likely be the team’s future, and it has everything but a stable small forward.
The Wizards don’t necessarily need a superstar to come in and lead the team. They have the always-improving Beal to do that. Like the Warriors did, they need a player that can come in and fill a role.
Wiggins, although he was scoring over 20 points per game the last few seasons, does that.
He could be that third star for the team and help them finally return to the playoffs in the East. With a top pick in this draft and a superstar returning, the Wizards could toss three first-round picks at Golden State for their first-round pick and Wiggins.
While that’s a bit out there, it seems like something that they benefit both sides, especially if the Wizards can stay a playoff team for the foreseeable future.
