The Washington Wizards are getting ready for the beginning of the 2022 NBA 2k23 Summer League, and fans are eager to see how the group looks. Among the young prospects on the roster is first-round draft pick Johnny Davis, who should be the best player for Washington throughout the tournament.

All 30 teams in the tournament-style ‘league’ will play a total of five games. Four games are scheduled prior to things kicking off. Game five for each team will be announced at a later date based on standings and tiebreakers.

Things kick off on July 7th and conclude on July 17th. The final day will include a championship game, played between the two teams with the highest winning percentage.

While the league starts on the 7th, Wizards fans will have to wait until the 9th to see their team take the court. They play that Saturday and Sunday, getting a back-to-back in to kick things off.

Wizards Summer League Schedule

  • Saturday, July 9th: 6PM ET Vs Pistons (ESPN 2)
  • Sunday, July 10th: 2:30PM ET Vs Phoenix Suns (NBA TV)
  • Wednesday, July 13th: 6PM ET Vs New Orleans Pelicans (NBA TV)
  • Friday, July 15th: 9PM ET Vs Indiana Pacers (ESPN 2)

As mentioned earlier, the team’s fifth game will be announced at a later date. That’s fine, as there is a ton to look forward to in the first four games.

The Pistons have an exciting young roster and they are sending a lot of talent to Las Vegas for the summer league. Johnny Davis could make quite the first impression as he faces off with a Pistons team featuring Cade Cunningham, Jaden Ivey and Killian Hayes, just to name a few.

After the game against the Suns, we’ll see the Wizards play another team loaded with young talent as they go up against the Pelicans. Dyson Daniels, selected a few spots before Davis, will be among the players to watch for New Orleans.

In the final game that’s already set, it’s yet again a team bringing a lot of talent to Las Vegas. The Pacer will be rostering 2022 NBA Lottery pick Bennedict Mathurin, another player who went just a few picks before Davis in the draft.

While it’s exciting to get a look at some of the young talent playing in the summer league, it’s also important to keep everything in perspective. Last year’s Wizards team was led in scoring by Caleb Homesley (12 points per game), while first-round draft pick Corey Kispert averaged just 9.5 points per contest.

It’s a sign of just how close the upcoming season is and gives us a glimpse of some of the NBA’s top young talent. With multiple promising players going to Vegas, Wizards fans should watch as many games as possible.
