The Golden State Warriors just looked like fools in every game the Washington Wizards played

Not only did Patrick Baldwin Jr show out for the Washington Wizards this summer, but so did the other throw-in piece involved in the trade, Ryan Rollins.

Rollins found opportunities to score constantly. In every game, he created scoring opportunities. He even started finding teammates with nice dimes after a slow start in that department.

Even better, he was forcing turnovers for the other team by putting pressure on ball handlers and clogging passing lanes. He wasn’t quite as good defensively as some of his teammates, but he was far better than expected.

This definitely earned him at least a spot on the Wizards’ roster next season. Still, the Wiz need to find a way to clear the logjam in the backcourt before they can fully commit to the 21-year-old.

Both of these players were given up as extra pieces to open roster and cap space for the Golden State Warriors and both look like they could have a huge impact this season. If they play like they did in the Summer League during the next NBA season, the Washington Wizards will have pulled off a crazy robbery.
