The Wizards have added three players to their Summer League roster. Cheick Diallo, Asante Gist, and Derrick Walton Jr. will all play for Washington in Las Vegas.

The trio of players were added after guards Cassius Winston and Issuf Sanon and forward Isaiah Todd entered the NBA’s Health and Safety Protocols.

Washington’s first Summer League game (against the Pacers) was scheduled for Sunday night, though it has been postponed due to COVID-19.

More From Washington

  • The Wizards still have their mid-level exception, though as Fred Katz of The Athletic explains, it’s unlikely that they end up using it. Washington is living dangerously close to the luxury tax line, something the franchise is unlikely to cross.
  • Corey Kispert recently signed his rookie deal with the Wizards. While the terms haven’t officially been released, if the Gonzaga product receives the full 120% of the rookie scale, the first year of the pact will be $3.38 million with a four-year total of $16.36 million.
