Washington Wizards Links: Team USA Beats Brazil, Shawn Marion Heading to Cleveland and More

We’re just a couple of weeks away from the start of the FIBA Basketball World Cup, but we actually have some NBA news to share today.

Here are the Wizardly Links for August 17th, 2014.

-Team USA dominated Brazil at the United Center last night. We recapped the game for you. (via Wiz of Awes)

USA will continue to work out their rotations during these exhibition games, but overall, I thought they played well tonight. Rose looked good, while Anthony Davis dominated in every aspect of the game.

- Humphries, Blair talked about joining the Washington Wizards. They seem pretty excited (via Wiz of Awes)

Getting more depth at the big man positions was key for the Washington Wizards this summer and I think they did a terrific job of getting two really solid contributors in Kris Humphries and DeJuan Blair without breaking the bank.

- ICYMI, a few members of the Washington Wizards took part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. (via Bullets Forever)

In response, Beal challenged John Wall, Garrett Temple and Randy Wittman to take the challenge. It didn’t take long for John Wall and Garrett Temple to respond to the challenge…

- The WizardsXTRA crew broke down the Washington Wizards’ 2014-2015 schedule. (via WizardsXTRA)

In light of all of the #KDtoDC2016 talk that has picked up momentum this summer, Kevin Durant‘s lone appearance at Verizon Center will be a spectacle.

- And finally, the Cleveland Cavaliers have added another solid player to their roster. (via FanSided)

No, Ray Allen hasn’t decided to come back and play but Shawn Marion has decided that Cleveland is where he wants to take his basketball talents this upcoming season.
