As far as I’m concerned, any man nicknamed “Jorts” was born to be a member of the Washington Wizards.

Jorts was a late cut by the Wizards prior to the beginning of training camp. He joined the team knowing there wasn’t a spot for him on the roster. He played surprisingly well in training camp and preseason, and probably did enough to earn a spot if there was one available. He shot the ball well from deep, rebounded and ran the floor: all things the Wizards need from their bigs in the pace-and-space system.

Washington might look to sign Jorts when more spots become available next season, but there’s no point in waiting. He’s better than Ryan Hollins. Plus, with Gooden out, the Wizards could actually have a big man on their roster who’s capable of hitting shots from deep.

Jorts is loved by everyone — including his former Kentucky teammate, John Wall. I love Jorts and you should too. He’s a Wizard even if he doesn’t put on the uniform.
