Washington Wizards select future All-Star Johnny Davis with the 10th overall selection


This is the perfect landing spot for Johnny Davis The Wizards are led by All-Star Bradley Beal who is coming off left wrist surgery, and should be healthy by next season, and have an influx of young talent. Washington will be a dark-horse playoff contender next year with the addition of Johnny Davis mark it down right now.

This is a franchise that desperately wants to win and build a consistent playoff contender and adding Johnny Davis should bring them right back to where they want to be.

What the Wizards are getting in Johnny Davis?

Davis had a breakout sophomore year campaign, averaging 19.7 points a game, 8.2 rebounds a game in 31 games played. Davis has a silky smooth jump shot, and is aggressive in going towards the basket and drawing fouls. But as good as Davis is on the offensive end, his defense is superb. Davis uses his long frame to bother shots and played well defensively against other Big Ten guards. Davis also led Wisconsin in rebounds and that’s the first time a guard has led the Badgers in rebounds for a season since Michael Finley did it in 1993-94 season (6.7 RPG).


Davis’s numbers did tail off towards the end of last season due to a leg injury suffered against Nebraska and therefore didn’t have the same lift on his jump shot as he did early in the season.

Davis didn’t always play in the flow of the game, he forced a lot of shots and didn’t do enough at certain points to get his teammates involved.

You can get physical with him: teams such as Rutgers, Michigan State, Penn State, and Minnesota are solid defensive teams, and they had long guards who forced Johnny Davis to take difficult shots and he struggled in those four games.


Johnny Davis couldn’t have gone to a better situation, with a young core that includes Kyle Kuzma, Kristaps, Corey Kispert, and Rui Hachimura the sky is the limit for the Wizards, and expect them back in the playoffs next season.
