Summer league roster announced
The Wizards released the names of players who will attend a mini-camp for summer league at Verizon Center next week. The list, which could change, includes the obvious guys: Andray Blatche, Nick Young, Oleksiy Pecherov, Dominic McGuire and JaVale McGee.
Other prospects include F Vytas Danelius (Lithuania/Wake Forest), G Dontaye Draper (Charleston), F Frank Elegar (Drexel), F Gary Forbes (Massachusetts), F Taj McCullough (Winthrop), G Mike Peeples (Farleigh Dickinson), G Jason Rich (Florida State), F Will Thomas (George Mason), G Jonathan Wallace (Gtown) and 2006 second round pick Vladimir Veremeenko who has been in Russia the last two seasons.
It's going to be interesting to finally see Veremeenko play live after reading about him and seeing small snippets on the internet the last two seasons. Don't look for him to be on the roster come October however because he has a pretty restrictive contract in Russia and I don't see the Wizards carrying more than 14 players into the regular season.
The Wiz open play in the Las Vegas summer league on July 14 and play five games between that night and the 20th. I'll be there for the last three games from the 18th to the 20th.
