WAS picks up 2023-24 options for Avdija, KispertSeptember 22, 2022 | 01:40 PM
The Wizards have picked up the 2023-24 contract options for Deni Avdija and Corey Kispert.
Analysis: This should come as no surprise to anyone, as Avdija and Kispert have proven to be solid contributors for the Wizards. Avdija appeared in all 82 games last season and was the better fantasy option of the two, despite only making eight starts. Kispert started 36 of the 77 games he appeared in as a rookie. The fantasy prospects for both players aren't great, however, with the Wizards acquiring Will Barton via trade. Add in Kyle Kuzma, who stands to see more time at the three with a healthy Kristaps Porzingis and Daniel Gafford, and Rui Hachimura, and there will be a lot of competition for minutes on the wings.
